    The quakecon schedule has been partially released. The only way to see it right now is to download the custom guidebook app that quakecon had made for this years event.

    I got the app and it's VERY slick, but when I try to "view it on the web" it asks for my guide's redemption code? Anyone know where to find said code?

    I have no clue what the code is for the website, so right now to see anything you need the app.

    Check out the QR code section of the app, they are doing a daily QR hunt game that lets you earn a raffle ticket.

    Yeah its only available for devices running Apple, Google, or Amazon app stores.

    Once they post the redemption code you should be able to view it online.

    LoL just noticed if you look at the event map in the app they have a room called the Evil Within Blood Drive.

    Did a little research:
    Can I donate blood, if have consumed alcohol a day before?
    No, it is not advisable to consume alcohol a day before donating blood.

    Avoid alcohol for next 24 hours after donating blood.

    So if you plan on doing this take that into consideration.

    Any chance we could get a Google Calendar version like in the past? I never had much luck with Guidebook alarms going off on time. Dunno if the app has improved since last year.

    If we can ever get access to the web version of the guidebook site it should be easy to export the schedule to google calendar. I was told that this custom guidebook app should work a lot better than the one that they have had the last few years, we will see.

    All, the app is currently in private stage (meaning in-house development). We are updating the Events and Exhibitor info as it comes in (slow process as you can imagine). In the coming days, the app will go full live, then website code will not be required. ;)
    Stay tuned.

    While i've been giving blood regularly for over 10 years now, i just don't see this being a good combo of a LAN party and blood donation. Bawls and everything else associated with PC gaming all night long, mixed with being low on iron and blood after giving just seems like a bad combo. I hope that the Red Cross does a good job warning participants of the dangers with staying up all night, not drinking enough water, and poor eating habits can be bad news for a person who just donated blood.

    Kudos to the idea, i just hope it's executed safely, and they realize the audience they are working with will just chug a bawls when they feel tired later that night, instead of drinking more water as they actually need.
