Dan on the road

2003-11-11 14:21:54.791666+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Greetings from Cary, NC. I'm sitting in Java Blü reading my email. If anyone's got questions about the economics of a cheap DSL from Speakeasy and a WAP, these guys are going to get at least $15 in business from me, an out of towner who'd otherwise be breakfasting at the Waffle House[Wiki], over the next three days because they let a computer consulting company buy some free advertising.

Yesterday's flights were Delta. There's a rant about airlines bubbling up here, but it's not at the surface because the differences are subtle.

The movie was The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen[Wiki]. How do movies like that get made? Horrible screenplay, but really baaaaad directing. Just because you have the special effects budget doesn't mean you should try to use it.

Hey Dan, I saw you are in Cary (where I live), and thought I'd say hi. The RTP bloggers are also planning a lunch THu 11/13 at 11:30 at Crazy Fire (http://crazyfire.com/directions/). Drop me a note at john@radiomind.com if you're up for anything, I may not be available, but there may be others who will be.

I'm out mid-day Thursday, and dinnering with cow-orkers tomorrow evening, but a reader and I (and a bunch of his coworkers) are having dinner tonight at 7:00 at the Hibernian in Raleigh (not the one in Cary). I'm wearing a blue mandarin collar shirt and have long hair and a beard, if you want to drop by.
