Octocon Schedule

I will be attending Octocon in a week. Octocon is the Irish nationan SF and fantasy convention, and I have been looking forward to go there ever since I decided to go.

Emma Newman is guest of honour, so I am super excited about that! I want to go to as many panels/items with her as possible, I think.

I decided to make my own little schedule for the convention, as the Octocon people post their timetable with a 12 hour clock, which I always find very confusing. I tend to mix what's before noon and what's after. A lot of Norwegians will probably disagree with me about this, but this is how it's like for me. I'm in general horrible with numbers (I'm more of the language type), so I decided to make my own timetable with the proper 24 hour clock. Besides, which proper geeks don't understand the 24 hour clock? ;-P
