That little flash is no big deal. Sorry to be a complainer. It didn't trigger any pain. For some reason i'm overly sensitive..LOL.. Yep, both me and Pavlov's Dogs can be trained.. given enough time. Here is a true story.

My story telling skills are limited but there was once a pair of clusterheads from California who headed to Vegas to visit a friend. As it was told to me.. the trip was awful.. if one of them wasn't clustering, the other was.. every change in elevation brought on an attack..either going up or coming down... or both.. Solutions to their pain were impossible to find.
One driver thought stopping was the best thing to do and wait for the pain to ease. Continuing to drive didn't work any better.. and then came the bright lights of the big city. I forget the real driving times that were quoted but it took them three times as long to get through the city as it should have because they were constantly being triggered by the flashing lights.

I'm on the east coast of canada and don't plan to go to the convention but anyone who is planning to attend should prepare themselves for that particular trigger. The scanners at checkouts are also an irritation.

..On Shadows... 'The monster returned, but was merely a shadow of his former self."

Painfree days a'head all..
