Roadrunner bound for Orlando, FL

Here I am on the Roadrunner Express, currently in Topeka, where we have to switch buses due to a flat.

It was already a late start leaving Manhattan, though the home pick up went better.

Should still make it to the airport in time to make my flight.

Though there are other people that might be cutting things too close.

Homeward bound from LISA '07

Well, I'm sitting at the airport waiting for my flight to MCI. I'm feeling the post-event blues... Starting to think the answer is find more events to go off to. Guess I need to take a look at my budget so that I set aside some of my discretionary funds for non-gadget items... Though there are gadget items that I already have planned and some adjusted plans....

Meanwhile, I've been informed that I am slightly overweight. Guess I acquired more loot at LISA than I thought I did, though I also shifted some of the weight from my carryon... So shifting could probably resolve the issue, but the agent let it pass.

Listening to others I heard that they had shipped some of there stuff... Namely dirty laundry. I had never thought of doing this. Perhaps something I might consider in the future, though I suspect it would be unlikely. What I need to do is remember to pack some bags so that I can better keep things separated.

It sure was interesting the 'friendships' that I formed by going to my first conference... There was that strange feeling that I knew some of the people longer than the conference, and that I will miss the people from my life now.

I am going to look to going next year, and as mentioned, look to see about attending other related events.

Oh well....

Darn, no internet

The free internet in my hotel room wasn't working when I popped in to ditch my laptop. It still wasn't working the I got back late last night (or early this morning). And, it still isn't working... So, I guess it is back to LISA.

Overheard in the line for my Southwest Flight

Southwest Airlines has a new boarding procedure....without any logic they give you a letter and a number, which gives you a spot in line to get on their plane. And, then it is open seating....

Not really a problem on my flight, since I'm traveling alone and I like aisle seats. So, as long as I can find one, I'm good.

Now when you check-in they give you a special ticket jacket to signify that you can pre-board. But, I overheard people complaining that flying with your 2 year old doesn't qualify you for pre-boarding and relies on the kindness of strangers if you want to sit next to your child.

Those people don't plan to fly Southwest ever again.

OTOH, this is my first time with Southwest....and I don't know what the future holds.

Fixing my mobile blog

Well, it turns out that my mobile blog wasn't working. Guess its another PHP difference with dreamhost.

So using the poor free WiFi at KCI, I worked on trying to fix the problem and suceeded.

Meanwhile, I just realized that I forgot my Where's George stamp... Guess I'll either not bother with that this trip, or I just enter the bills and release them naked.

LISA Bound

Well, I think I am finally LISA bound... Only about an hour late.

First, the home pickup was late as usual. Just a bit worse since it was the driver's second day in Manhattan. Then it was a pickup at the confusing laid out Jardine.

But not too worried, only cuts into the 3 hours that I'd have been waiting at the airport for the flight to Dallas.

Let's see if this still works....

This will be an attempt to consolidate the little thoughts that come to me while away from my computer.
