I’m currently sitting at gate G19 at MSP, looking at my plane getting loaded up.
I look around. Geeks? Yep.. there’s one. Got that “I’m going to TechEd” look of boundless enthusiasm and wonder. And I wonder, “Will that change once he sees how much walking he’s going to be doing in Orlando?” Nah… he won’t have a problem with that. And I’m looking forward to losing a few pounds as well.
“Are you kidding? I hear that the food and snacks are endless at TechEd!”
Yes, but somehow I always manage to lose a few. And this year I’m counting on it.
So.. the agenda for today:
Land in Orlando at around 11:45am (provided the storms in the area don’t delay the arrival). Get rental, and head to the hotel.
Late afternoon – Go pick up John Baker (my team mate and roommate on this trip) at the airport.
Early evening – Go pick up Harold Wong (another teammate).
Late late evening – Go pick up Bryan Von Axelson (yet another teammate).
That’s about it for today, other than taking a few more pictures and videos for this here journal.
“Hey Kevin.. you promised you’d post some photos from past TechEds!”
Yeah.. well, unfortunately my home server/media center had a power supply failure yesterday, so the photos are all redundantly saved on 2 hard disks… but the computer is dead until I get back from TechEd. <sigh> Stupid hardware problems….
