I'm still getting the hang of using this camera. I'm trying to take as many shots as I can without the flash, but sometimes that means the shots are a bit too dark even in a reasonably well-lit room
Here David Gallaher (left) and Craige Howlett have a heart-to-heart talk about something. But who is making whom an offer he can't refuse?
As the reception broke up, some of us went down to the restaurant and had a late snack. I had some calamari, although maybe I should not have eaten anything at all. I had a 188 blood sugar this evening one hour after dinner on account of having no time to exercise. I therefore had to cast a covetous eye upon the tray of desserts and limit myself to a couple of cups of tea with Splenda and one small cookie.
Then it was up to my hotel room. For some reason, they put me in a handicapped-accessible room. I called down to make sure I wasn't taking a room away from anyone, and let them know I didn't need the accessible room. They assured me it was okay. It may have been the only non-smoking king room left when I checked in. Gosh, this is a huge room. It feels like it could hold two of the rooms we had at the Mission Valley Marriott at Westercon. Not that I'm offering to host a room party in my room at ConStruction, mind you, but if I was, this is a good room for it.
I did buy the internet access (but I'll be charging my company for it), and found some work-related e-mail sent to me from our Chicago office and time-stamped 10:50 PM their time. I spent about an hour dealing with their issue and sending back questions -- they'll probably be working on this tomorrow -- then dumped the photos out of the camera.
Fortunately for me, I don't have a panel first thing tomorrow; however, I do want to attend the programming. That's the main point of this conference, after all.
