Arrived last night and checked in, spoke with a few people, had a beer, and then headed out to the boat to hang out with the family. Sail over was beautiful but the wind died about sunset (as always) and we had to fire up the motor to finish the trip. About 2.5 hours.
This morning I arrived for coffee/muffins at 7:40 only to learn that the conference start has been pushed back an hour. Bummer. Also found my macbook battery dead – double bummer.
The good news is my macbook reports that the battery will be charged before the conference starts.
Time to review the bag of schwag.
The bag itself is the typical canvas “shopping bag” with sponsor printing all over it.
Inside are various sample products and goodies including a Vista beta CD and veritable boat anchor of a book listing Vista software. It seems MS is a big sponsor. I’ll spare you the item by item list of discount coupons.

Superball with LED’s in the middle that light up with bounced.
Also, the T-shirt design ROCKS.
