Off To The Races

Heading off to the San Jose Grand Prix in a few minutes. It looks like it will be on ESPN2 at 3 PM Pacific Time if anyone out there reading this wants to watch it.

I'm all packed up for the race, having dumped all of my computer gear out of my backpack to use it to carry lunch, water, sunscreen, camera, ear plugs, and headphones. I thought about bringing the computer as well, particularly as San Jose downtown is supposed to have wi-fi throughout, but a test tote with the computer (including the spare battery to give it extended range) made it too heavy to be carrying around for more than six hours, particularly with a standing-room-only ticket.
