OSCON








So I arived in Portland today about noon, went and got something to eat then checked into the Convention center Inn; One of the last decent rooms in the vicinity (minus microwave and most amenities, came to $100). After a short nap, I went to the convention center to look for swag, not having registered, I was lucky to get an OSCON bag.

The wireless here works great, however, the initial attempt to log into a shell failed. I was able to ping the Internet, but I wasn't about to log into anything without an encrypted shell. spoofing my mac address (sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx) I was instantly able to log into dedication--hmm.

At 7:30 pm Larry Wall started the awards. Damien Conway, was supposed to get on stage at 8:30, but some blonde with a big rack just keeps going on and on about nothing in particular, so I decide to run up for some fast food, getting back only to find I missed half of Damien's talk.

I listened to several other speach and question events in the portland ballroom of the convention center. At 10:30 on wednesday I excitedly rushed to the expo to find out only the 'registered guests could get in' so much for open source. Ah well, always next year. and maybe my employer will pay for it then. The hotel room had some issues by the way, their wireless turned out to be non-existant, the bathroom fan didn't work, there was no microwave, shuttle, or continental breakfast. (I was reminded why I used to bring my own towels, soap, shampoo, pillow, etc when I traveled. I didn't and I regreted it)
