SF, Day 1.5

Walked around the city last night to try and get a feeling for my general surroundings.  Got lost several times, but was always able to find my way back since my hotel is plainly visible from just about everywhere.  Walked from 2nd to 6th, Bryant to CA, and then realized "damn... i'm hungry, i haven't eaten at all today".  Found a "meh" sushi place and a much better bar, and then crashed at the hotel.


SF, Day 2

An unexpected event!  There's a gay pride celebration going on right now in the city of SF (who would have imagined!).  So i spent the morning watching the Dykes on Bikes go by, and then watched way too many guys go by who look better as girls than a lot of the girls i know.  (i know, i know... girls, it's just not fair that some men should have legs like that, but hey... that's life).  Now I'm at the Netbeans Thingamabob, and i'm sitting in the audience waiting for it to start.  I was supposed to register, but the line was too appallingly long to fathom waiting to get through it.  Of course, i take this as a tribute to Netbeans that it's commanded such popularity.  I certainly loved it when i used to use it, and apperantly a whole lot of other people do to.  Of course, i'm not suprised about the backlog of people waiting to register.  Nothing more expected than a bunch of programmers being unable to handle a scheduling problem .

I'm also unable to get wireless access here.  Yeah!  Should be a crime right?  If i did have online access i'd tell you i was in the MegaTokyo tshirt,(phe4r my l33t n3kk1d sk1llz!!!) sitting in the second row, second from teh middle on the left. Oh well.  :)
