- Thank you very much Brant. I had a great time in my second ACDC. A designer like David Thompson with his By Stealth and Sea was my best moment of the weekend.
Also thanks to Cyrano, of course, and to Tim, Karl, Dave and to Scott Moore and his infinite patience.  :bigthumb:

Some very nice words from attendee Andrew Bucholtz about The ACDC on this podcast episode, starting around the 15-minute mark or so
