Getting to Phoenix

Aside from the highly undesirable getting up at 2:30 AM in order to sure of being at the airport by 4 AM for my 6 AM flight, and having to pay $16/day for parking instead of being able to take BART and the AirBART bus for much less money, the trip from Oakland to Phoenix was uneventful, just the way I like it, and the middle seat didn't fill. Lisa having checked in last night, and I confirmed the credit card details and went up to the room.

I'm unpacked and settled in, and have turned in an assignment that was due from me that I did while on the plane. Now to go get registered and take stuff down to the fan tables. Wireless access is free. Not sure how much I'll be online.

I wouldn't mind a nap, actually. I can't sleep on planes easily. And aside from food bars I took with me, I haven't had anything to eat this morning. Food services at Oakland airport mostly don't seem to open until 5 or 5:30, except for the Starbucks kiosk near gate 14, primarily aimed at that 6 AM departure for Phoenix on USAir.
