May 10, 2002 – Ah, home at last. Long trip but decent. The show was tighter, more techie than previous years.
I had some interesting goings-on on Thursday night. I am not going to comment on it just yet…maybe in a day or two. I have to see how some actions on my part pan out. I did find out the Defcon convention is in August, not July (as usual) so my next trip to LV may not be until then.
Final swag tally: 5 t-shirts, a Leatherman-style tool, some toys, a Frisbee and a plethora of paperwork to read. It was, however, a light year compare to some others.
I had about 3 hours or REALLY BAD sleep on Thursday night/Friday morning. I was actually tired enough to sleep on a plane without the aid of Xanax – but only little patches of microsleep.
I have laundry to do and a lot to read. Next week will prove to be busy with little errands lining up already.
I may be moving to another hosting provider. The downtime notices I get are getting more numerous. I’m sorry; working with web and application servers makes one very prone to judge downtime against a provider. I may not do much with this site but if I had as much downtime at my work, well, there’d be problems. As an FYI, my last availability report averaged >99.9% uptime – and that was testing the HTTP service, not just ICMP connectivity. That is what I expect out of people I pay.
