Damn, talk about things going wrong all the sudden. Lots of little things. I get here 5 minutes late and don't have my badge. I walk all the way across the convention center to the registration booth to get the new badge, go into the seminar, get out and hour and a half later and go eat. Then, I decide to get on the wireless network here and...w(here)tf is my wireless card. I took it out last night when I was testing a Cisco router with Leonard. I bet it is sitting next to my damned badge on the table in the hotel room. Bah! I mean, it is minor stuff but I am stuck on a public terminal and am a bit anxious about setting up Y! chat or anything on it. Someone set up their Y! and MSN accounts on one yesterday and an IM popped up when I walked up to the terminal. I was tempted to cause problems but I just killed the clients and checked my email. Damned ethics.

My earlier complaining, I realize, were minor issues. However, I am left to wonder...given how typical it is for things to go horribly wrong when any glimmer of hope is present, will Las Vegas be where it all blows up in my face?

There is supposed to be a customer appreciation event here (read: beer bash). I have no idea where it is. No one seems to be walking toward anything in particular other than most toward buses.

I think this was a pretty good deal given I got into this conference for about half the normal rate (early bird discount plus non-profit discount). It would have been nice if I had known a few people here to meet and hang out with. I guess I could have tried to do that through friendster but, like I posted once before in another LJ, millions of opportunities for people to reject me outright because I am either a) not their vision of a good hookup, b) not their vision of a cool person to hang out with, or c) not Amber.

Oh well, I guess the hotel room does have TV.
