San Diego! [Jul. 24th, 2001|08:24 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
In San Diego... it rules. I was going to stay with alanj and his coworker but alan had to cancel, so now I'm staying with just Jonathan .... he's cool. debgirl001 took the both of us out and toured us around San Diego and the beaches. Damn cool.

Oh, btw .... $200/night hotels are much neater than $40/night motels. We have high-speed ethernet in our hotel room! How cool is that?

Big ol' swimming pool, too.

Tons of geeks with laptops running around, 99% of them running Linux. I saw a guy with Win2K on his laptop and I was considering paying a concierge $5 or something to go tell the guy, "I'm sorry, sir, but we're going to have to ask you to leave." (this is an open source convention, ya see?)

Anyway, looks like there's going to be tons of fun crap to go to. Monday and Tuesday are all paid-only events, but Wed-Fri there are free sessions that actually look good. Most of the paid tutorials are really easy crap.

Umm... that is all. Bye.

BWAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! I would have chipped in for that. Better yet, spend $10 for mixed-drink Screwdriver and tip for the bartender to offer the cocktail and say "excuse me sir, but this is an open-source convention, and Windows-using punks are invited to screw themselves. Here's something to get you started, courtesy of Debian users."

hee hee! Or you could just order him a Gorilla Snot, courtesy of the Linux community. Of course you'd probably have to serve it yourself for full effect...
