A Long Day

It is now 10:00 p.m. and the meetings have ended for the day after beginning at 8:30 this morning. There is only a limited time for these Joint Tech meetings and everyone wants to fit in as much as possible. Between meetings, I ran on the treadmill again and I'm pretty happy with my progress. I gave an Alaska update during one of the meetings tonight and tomorrow at noon, I have a working group meeting. I finally sent out the agenda for that meeting just a few minutes ago.

BTW, the Internet at this hotel is incredible. Yesterday, I thought that I needed the Xcode DVD and down loaded it from Apple. I downloaded over the hotel wireless in less than 20 minutes. And just now, I did an iTunes update and it downloaded in less than a minute. The Internet² global NOC is just a couple of blocks away and the hotel is getting it's Internet from the UIPUI campus which probably gets it from the I² CPS service. Pretty good for hotel wireless.

I am using the Dell Mini9 exclusively on this trip. I didn't even bring the Macbook Pro. So far so good. The battery easily last for my uses throughout the day though I do need to charge it before the evening meetings. Speed is perfectly adequate and I even have used it to watch a couple of movies. I even used it to meet the IPv6 challenge that is set up here at the meeting. Dual stack and stateless auto-configuration works as advertised, IVI didn't and I'm really interested in why...
