You never know, you might have just made the other comic and still met Dawg and Tynan through Keenspace. Anyway, it's a cute story.
Interestingly, I was originally going to go to that convention, but I didn't. Hmm, I wonder if it would have had some huge affect on my life if I had gone. Ah well, life is filled with a million such mysteries - The ways you meet friends and loved ones are often totally coincidental.

Court is still out on "best", but it definitely had a pretty big impact on my life too.
Otherwise, there are few things that had a random impact on me, I think otherwise you can basically trace the path of my life and say "oh, so that's where that comes from" for almost everything.
The thing that had the most similar effect to that was a short period of time in which my dad lost his job (he's never really gotten another steady job since then) and a close relative was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Those events caused me to realize the true importance of friends and family and significantly changed my personality.
They've also to some extent caused me to have a fondness for things from my childhood (my site indicates a love of retro games and I love old cartoons and such), probably because it represents a time in my life when those around me were generally happier.
