29. June, 2004 - network troubles at WWDC

So I’m out at Apple’s WWDC this week, and as is typical on Monday at the conference, the network wasn’t happy. What’s not typical is that it was so unhappy, I only managed to connect to the ’net twice all day. I’m hoping I can get online a bit more today, but updates may be sporadic this week.

There were no real surprises in yesterday’s keynote. I’m sure plenty of other people covered it, but there’s OS evolution to come, and the spiffy new hardware that SJ announced was all stuff that had been leaked before. I do have a case of hardware lust for the new 30″ Cinema Display, but I’m probably going to have to wait a while before I can satisfay that.

On the personal front, it’s been interesting watching people’s reactions to “the new Dave”. Everyone’s been confused by the lack of hair and beard, but most people have been complimentary.

The conference lunch yesterday was another gripe to add to the network problems. Apparently SJ has decided we’re all going to be vegetarians this week. Not only that, the choices were mostly pasta. Definitely not an Atkins-friendly conference. I didn’t mind the pasta, but I would have liked to have some high-quality protein with it.

Well, that’s the update for today. If I can manage to get onto the net a bit today, I may have some links tomorrow, but at this point I don’t know. It’s out of my hands.
