I wanted to tour the Pentagon when I'm in DC on the 13th, but their tour site's been broken. It works now, but tours cannot be requested < 14 days in advance.


Super impressed by all the hands at that went up with "is this your first WordCamp?"

Welcome, everyone!!!

Stop being hostile to security!
