What a fun rental car!

Going to the Bay Area
Whee! I’m going to be flying off to San Jose this afternoon!! And I’m going to be there for a whole week, so I should have time to catch up with all of my Bay Area friends that I haven’t seen in far too long.
I’m thinking about going to the Napa Valley this coming weekend, and see if Stirling Winery has more of that really yummy wine that introduced me to.
First time in Tokyo!
Back from the family reunion
So I’ve just gotten back from my family reunion in Lagnua Beach, (hopefully, I’ll have time to write about that, but I’m being realistic, probably not) and I’m going to be in the Bay Area for a few days, until January 9th when I fly back to Boston. So if folks are interested in seeing me, I have a number of lunches and dinner free. 🙂
Ironing in hotel rools
It is really cool that hotels have ironing boards. It would be even cooler if they had (a) the small, narrow ironing boards for ironing sleaves, and (b) squirt bottles with starch solution. This is clearly asking for too much, however. 🙂
(Am currently in Bay Area until Saturday morning, on a customer visit. And on Saturday, Stacey’s flying home with me to Boston for Thanksgiving!!)
OSCON 2003 has a sucky network!
The networking at the O’Reilly Open Source Conference seems to be up about half time, and down half the time. And when it’s up, it’s corrupting packets so frequently that ssh connections die after a few minutes, and imap-ssl download connections die after downloading 2-4 messages, thanks to checksum errors. LAME…
