We got the penthouse suite, no one could stop us. We came, we saw (the inside of hotel and press rooms, anyway), we conquered the 2005 CES. Now we're headed back to our respective Engadget offices (New York, San Francisco, Seattle, L.A., etc.) a whole lot wiser, and great deal more sleep-deprived, and slightly more drunk. But just because CES is over doesn't mean we've finished! We'll continue to have more posts until we've covered every corner of the Las Vegas Convention Center—remember, every day can be CES if you just believe it in your heart. But for now, some vital LV Team Engadget stats:

Number of posts: 229 (and counting)
Number of lost gadgets: 4
Number of laptops broken: 1
Number of colds caught: 2
Number of WiFi networks traversed: 12
Average hours slept nightly: 4.73
Number of HD tapes used: 7
Energy bars consumed: 34
Number of casinos visited: 6
Amount of money lost gambling: $34.50
