This is a test

This is a test post to see if mobile blogging still works following the upgrade of my blog.

You may be a dreamer, but I’m The Dreamer, the definite article you might say!

Homeward bound from Penguicon 6.0

  • From Facebook... Lawrence is tired, but up getting ready for the long trip home from Penguicon 6.0. 05:53 AM April 21, 2008 from twitterfeed
  • Killing time at hotel. Waiting for cab to take me to airport to start 12 hours of travel to get me home. 06:25 AM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Now waiting at DTW for AA1145 10:35 to ORD, to connect to AA1861 to MCI. And then Roadrunner to home. 08:08 AM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Just remembered I have Jolt Mints, so I can get more caffiene without giving in to Starb.... 08:23 AM April 21, 2008 from web
  • I've succumbed, somebody sat next to me with McD fries. So, I went and ordered a #4 w/cheese and a diet. 11:28 AM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Now on board AA1861 for MCI from ORD. 12:01 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Now landed at ORD 10:20 AM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Now sitting at MCI Airport waiting for the Roadrunner to show up and take me the rest of the way home.... 02:07 PM April 21, 2008 from TwitterFox
  • Sitting on Roadrunner... Looking for last pickup res. before heading towards MHK. 03:04 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Departed Lawrence. Feeling sore, tired and kind of sad... Wonder when I'll take my next vacation... I hit 38 in Oct (and turn 40). 04:15 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Now departing from Topeka. And, no longer sitting by the wheel... Do I still feel like napping? 04:38 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Finally home. Crack some windows, it is hot indoors, but cool outside. 05:58 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Wonder what I'll have for supper. Maybe I'll try the pasta from Pizza Hut.... 05:58 PM April 21, 2008 from web
  • Guess the Pizza Hut here doesn't do pastas....what do I feel like having? 06:13 PM April 21, 2008 from TwitterFox
  • That was nice sleeping on my own bed, one thing I miss when I travel. Though this last trip I didn't notice the bed so much. about 15 hours ago from TwitterFox
  • But, it was quieter in the hotel room than it is in my condo.....now to make some coffee. about 15 hours ago from TwitterFox
  • Still slowly working on catching up on E-mail. Need to come up with a way to keep up on my dozens of email accounts when I travel. about 12 hours ago from TwitterFox
  • Apparently there are some things at work that still need my input. Guess that means I'll still be wanted after having taken a vacation. about 11 hours ago from TwitterFox
  • Bah...suffering from email poisoning. Declaring that I'm sufficiently current on my Email. about 7 hours ago from TwitterFox

The taxi scheduled to pick me up at 8am from the Hilton, showed up just moments before 8am. Apparently, the driver had been idling outside of the Embassy Suites for some time before realizing he was at the wrong hotel. But, I was none the wiser until he told me.

No free WiFi at either DTW or ORD. Even though the PA announcement seemed to give the impression that was free, and that I needed to set my SSID to 'concourse'. The only SSID I could find was 'Boingo Hot Spot', and it wanted money...like $6.95 for an hour or $9.95 a month for the first 3 months...didn't look to see what it would cost after the 3 months or what kind of commitment or lock in. If I'm going to sign up for a Hot Spot service, it would have to be something that would be useful to me here in Manhattan. Though it was the same network doing WiFi at ORD, at least the SSID there was 'concourse'. Though the posters said secure SSID concourse, but 'concourse' was an unsecure SSID.

It did cross my mind about looking at wireless broadband service, but it was hard to navigate the few sites I glanced at with my Blackberry. And, if I did get it...I'd probably want to use my personal laptop....which is another thing I would need to buy....and don't know which service will work with a Linux laptop. It should probably also work with Mac OS X and the work MacBookPro...but the intent is that it would be a secondary consideration. Though I don't know how often I would need another broadband service for a laptop. Since it would mainly be at home or at work, both of which have wireless access.

But, getting a Linux laptop will still be somewhere on my list of computers to acquire. I just wasn't planning to be buying 4 computers this year....

Though I do plan to scale back my plans to buy that coffeemaker as expensive (or more) as my bed....though I have a sudden interest in acquiring tea and tea related accessories. Probably too warm now to be looking at chocolate related acquisitions.

For the future, wonder if there's an automated way to archive Tweets on this blog

  • From Facebook... Lawrence is tired from lack of sleep, but ready for another day of Penguicon. 07:22 AM April 20, 2008 from twitterfeed
  • Checking badges by Consuite. Am I volunteering to be here next year for free, or just some free shirts? 11:30 AM April 20, 2008 from web
  • Penguicon 6.0 is over, time to bed before 12+ hours to get me back home. 10:35 PM April 20, 2008 from TwitterFox
  • But, I am registered for Penguicon 7.0. Wonder what other cons I should consider exploring along the way. Wonder how to pay for them... 10:37 PM April 20, 2008 from TwitterFox

sometime after I tweeted about checking badges by Consuite, I met wolfger....who mentioned he is now following me because he saw me mention penguicon in my tweets.

I ended up with using Whuffies to buy a 2008 Penguicon shirt, and registration for next year's Penguicon.

Wonder if I'll still have the two left over Whuffies come next year....
