    Well, I guess I'll be that guy this year. Does anyone know if there is a planned vendor for monitor rentals?

    I need to rent a PC, so I'm looking for information as well. :)

    Just sent an email to the contact I had from last year. Hopefully they give me some sort of response.

    Nothing so far sadly. Kinda getting to the semi-worried stage at this point. I may have to start looking into other options if I don't hear anything soon.

    Depending on your friend-making abilities, you may be able to borrow one from someone that lives closer that has a monitor laying around at home not being used for the weekend. You could give them $50 or something else of value to hold during the event and they'd let you check in their monitor as yours for the weekend. Then at the end of the weekend, just trade it back. You could even agree on a small fee if it would help someone "trust" you more. I'm coming from 15 hours away, otherwise i'd be able to help you out with a Monitor...

    PC might be a little more of a stretch since they are worth so much more and harder to replace and store personal information. Hopefully that can be rented.

    Yeah, I'm flying down which somewhat limits my options taking a monitor. I know a few people down that way that I could ask and see if they had a spare for the event. My other thought would be to find a small monitor that would fit in my carry-on with my ITX case or in my backpack.

    "one of the guys with ESL (contracted reg guys) does the rentals on the side. Bob is checking with him to see if he will be providing the same service this year." Will update when I hear more :)
