As I said, I had to sneak in to Hall 1, and got turned away at Hall 2. So they are checking for credentials, but you might get lucky and sneak in to certain Halls. Officially, you need tickets or passes.
If you have time for only one Hall, go to the Nangang Hall.

GF's presenting some gadget or other there so I suppose she might be able to get me in if I get up there early enough on Friday.

She hasn't offered though. :ponder:

Probably reckons I'm too scruffy and she'd lose face. :(

Then again I'm always late. :ponder:

Not sure about "oogling" (Googling without the G-spot?) but there's plenty of ogling available in the day job.

If I finish this article I'm working on early, I can go in the afternoon. Anyone there? Anyone going? Nankang (Nangang) Hall.

Interesting article about "booth babes" at Computex.

On average, Computex models make $100 to $170 for about 8 hours of work, she said, while models at other shows can make as little as $60. Lee decided to model at Computex for the money, after working in the modeling industry part-time for four years, in music videos and commercials. This year's show will be her last, because she's taking a job as a product manager at a biotech company that produces cosmetics and health products.

"It takes a lot of energy, because you stand for a long time," she said. During her eight hour day, Lee stands for 30 minutes holding a product, then takes a 10-minute rest and repeats the process. "You have to look happy all day and smile, but it's not that easy," she said. "It gets very tiring."

170 nt ? I heard they make anywhere from 5000nt / day to 20,000nt/day depending if they just stand around or are a booth presenter .

Foreign models reportedly make some 30,000nt/ day.

I think it's $US. So 170 would be around NT$5000

Leaving in about an hour, so I probably won't get there in time, plus I'm not (yet) sure which hall she's at. If I make it, I'll be the scruffy foreigner with the bamboo staff, cod-martial-arts-flick-wandering-Shaolin-stylee. Can't miss me, though you might want to.

Come to think of it they might not let me in even with a pass.
