Dispatches From FinnCon #3

I've received clarification that, in the previous dispatch, what I'd thought was a steam-powered internet connection was actually the sauna. The internet connection is pedal powered. But they have tame trolls to do the pedaling so it is OK.
We had a very splendid sauna last night, followed by the obligatory skinny-dipping in the nearby lake. We had to look out for Jonathan Clements though - Finnish trolls have a bad habit of trying to catch young men who are about to be married and drowning them, and we would not want anything to happen to the poor boy.

The convention starts around 11:00am with another press conference. Joe will miss it - he has to stay in Helsinki for a few hours to get a medal for his part in defeating the French terrorists. Today's proceedings are mainly for academics and authors, which is just as well because most of the Finnish fans are busy training for tonight's ice-hockey tournament.
