Yes, that's the same Gavin Blair who helped create ReBoot.
A Comic convention is blowing through town and there is a booth where he and a few of the other cast members are meeting the fans and doing autographs before a big panel tomorrow. They were also selling NOS toys like the Bucket O Binomes. Me and Jax184 knew this would be an awesome time to do what no other SGI/ReBoot fan has done before: get our systems signed.

Immediately following the signing of the Octane, I pulled out the front skin of my Indigo which while beaten and slightly scuffed, was signed as well.

But yeah, Gavin's never been anything less than generious and patient on the times I've met him. I had a feeling he'd be kind enough to sign my SGI on video, and sure enough he was happy to.

It was nice to see a crowd of fans around the Reboot table this year, especially since there was a batmobile directly across from it attempting to steal their thunder. The first time I saw Gavin was at Anime Evolution 2009, where he was manning the Reboot table in the dealers room. No one recognized that this pudgy, balding man was the creator of the show. I was able the walk right up and discuss SGIs with him without holding up a line of fans. Cool for me, but I felt he deserved a bit more recognition.

I'll post a photo of the Octane whe I get home.

Okay, it took me a few days to get around to it, but here's a picture of the Octane in its home on my vintage desk.

I'm jealous of your original computer game box collection. I had kept every single gaming box I had ever owned from 1989 to 2005 (Falcon 1.0, the Original Test Drive, Doom, Quake 1-3, all of the Interplay Star Trek and Descent games etc). Didn't have room when I moved out of the house in 05, my parents said take them or they were throwing them out. So sadly I only saved my Star Trek Judgement Rites CE box :(

The big Motorola Dynosaur on the shelf is working, outside of its battery. But there's no longer any AMPS services in Canada, so I can't hook it up. The smaller StarTAC down on the desk was my primary phone until a couple years ago. I hacked in a colour OLED screen to replace its monochrome LCD.
