Sure! But given that I've never had flight lessons it would probably be the end of us both. :p

Maybe there's one in your neck of the woods someday? I'm hopeful that this is a sign we might see a return of ASUS events A.B. (After Brian) :D

I think it's because more tech companies are based out of the West coast than the Southeast. It's much easier and cheaper to find a venue and set up for an event if you just have to drive there. There are also a lot of events in Asia that we'll never see here because of the concentration of tech over there.

Heck Atlanta would be nice. 10 hour drive, but it is not 3,000 miles away. Bostons show is 2 day drive away. Can't do that one too far. oh well. I guess it sucks to be a Asus fan and live anywere but Cali or Asia.

Can I bring a RIVE and the RMA number for it? It'll save me the time of shipping to IN:p

And you would have to be at the one Fry's in the bay area I've never hit.

Very tempting to cruise by though.

Looked like a good time. I posted about if and when ROG might show up at the Fountain Valley Ca, Frys, but no response. Maybe next time !

Sweet paint job on the cases. Any idea how long it takes to do something like that? Love to see some WW2 aviation based paint jobs.

Sunnyvale is close to the cali HQ so it's a bit easier. It would be cool if they could find a manageable way to take it on the road though. :)
