Purrrr

Only 45 hours this week, I don't have to work tomorrow, and it's less than 2 weeks to my vacation. I will have serious ants-in-the-pants by this time next week, and I will be seriously vacation brained at work on the 27th.

Gods, I need this road trip. I'm not sure why, since I will end up packet deprived unless I glom onto an external usb wireless nic (or an ether -> wireless adaptor). Then again, my major email is accessible by webmail. I even now have a pda with a modem, although I'm not sure what use I'd get out of it.

Note to self: update resume on web, print geek business cards.

To LISA - the Usenix/Sage sysadmin conference - in San Diego. *boingy* *boingy*

*grin* Have fun!

One question, though: how can there possibly be a lack of net access at a sysadmin convention ;-)

Well, they will have WiFi at the convention, and the convention hotel. My portable does not have a WiFi card (no pcmcia slots, only USB), and I am not staying at the convention hotel (@$149/night). I'm staying at a nearby, cheaper, but probably unwired, hotel, and I am not sure I want to lug my portable around. Hence possible packet deprivation.

I seem to remember that your cell phone is Nextel. Am I correct? If so they have a deal for $10 per month that gets you access. I am not sure of all of the details as I still have el cheapo for cell. A friend of ours has it since he travels a lot. It is slow, 19800 bps for him, but does let him do his email and, I think, even connnect his laptop. Might be worth checking out.

Have fun on your vacation. I know how much you are looking forward to it and, I imagine, to being able to take a real vacation without feeling guilty about it. You deserve it. Well, you deserve the best of everything in my book, and I might be just a tad prejudiced, but not much *grin*.

All is well on the familial eastern front. *big relaxing sigh* Your mama will even have your gma totally out of debt in another year, not an easy thing to accomplish, but frugality and a little pooling of physical and food resources is working wonders. Love from all and big hugs too.
