Last Call at Redwood Shores

This evening, I finished packing up my cubicle at the Redwood Shores office of Menlo Worldwide, changed my voice-mail greeting to warn people not to leave messages here and to take note of my new number, labeling computer equipment for relocation, and otherwise getting putting the final touches on my part of moving out of the building where I've worked for much of the past ten years.

I feared I would be in here all night cleaning things up, but apparently the work I did last week, dumping many boxes of old files and packing things away, worked, because I was done at around 7 PM.

And so, farewell to the Redwood Shores offices. I think I'll miss them. I'll certainly miss having such nice walking paths available such as the 3 km or so path around the Oracle headquarters. I haven't been to the new office yet, so I don't know if there are convenient walking paths near them or not. That will be among my tasks when I return next Wednesday after CascadiaCon.

And speaking of which, I'd better get a move on, because I need to finish packing for NASFiC tonight. Tomorrow I hope to catch an earlier flight than the one on which I'm currently booked, not only because I would prefer to have more time to set up my GoH exhibit, but because the currently-booked flight has an on-time rating of 10%.

Of course, if all the flights are full, I get to spend 5-6 hours hanging around Oakland International Airport, but I still need to reduce my thoughts on a GoH talk to writing, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.
