They really did a good job of getting in these 3rd party items.  I picked up a bunch of magazines like Adventure Gaming, Game News, VIP of Gaming, Abyss fanzines and lots of nonTSR stuff too like Gamelords, New Infinities, Ragnarok Press, Sage Lore, LegendQuest, Games Workshop stuff.  The list goes on and on.

Its the kind a place where Gord just might have the Gateway to Adventure display still stashed away in his basement.  I'm applying for a job in Lethbridge so who knows, I may end up out there sometime :)


What are you applying for?  Lethbridge is a very windy place BTW.

I'm hoping to finish up the PhD in CS sometime this year and Lethbridge has two faculty positions in CS open.  A lot of it depends on if they are looking for someone in my particular area or if they want someone with more experience - its pretty much a crap shoot I think.

BTW, I gave a talk in Lethbridge many years ago.  I flew to Calgary (I think), and drove from there.  Stopped at a really cool buffalo jump somewhere along the way.  I love that kind of landscape.

I went to a conference in Lethbridge a few years back and did the same thing - fly to Calgary and drive to Lethbridge.  I stopped in Vulcan though to take a picture with the Enterprise (yes the one from Star Trek).

Actually, I do self-motivation talks, much in the style of the character played by Tom Cruise in "Magnolia".

There's no "probably" about it, Mark.  His overtime alone puts us away.   :D
