  • At the Riviera now

    It's 2:09 AM and I've just checked into the wonderful Riviera.

    Strangely enough there are only two types of people walking around... male whites that look like Priest and lots of Chinese. There's a police chiefs convention going on right now at the hotel and here is a look at some of their interesting sessions.

    Wireless - I see several hotspots, but it's all fee-based. There is a wide-open NETGEAR that doesn't give an IP - so you could probably get in by sniffing for an IP address and then statically assigning yourself something in the block. But... there's no way in hell I would trust that connection, even if I did get in.

    I think it was the same police convention there last year. It's much smaller, mostly in the rooms right near the entrance. Glad to see someone is already there scoping it out.

    I've typically flown in late Thursday night most of the time, but this year I'll be coming in tonight. It's kind of cool to watch the place transform in the span of a few hours as people from all over start flooding in. It tends to be really quiet through most of Thursday.

    I'm psyched cause this year I can finally make it to the Toxic BBQ tomorrow.

    I'll be looking for early folks to hang out with around the lobby so keep an eye out.

    PS: Got a new at&t HSDPA phone just in time for the trip, just need to get bluetooth working.

      Our San Diego based "convoy" is leaving early tomorrow, so that we can make the Toxic BBQ event for the first time. See you all there!

          Tonight? Tonight? I am already here. You are slow. I drove (of course), preferring the annoyance of driving to the difficulties of getting all the coffeewars stuff and all the electronics through TSA.

          So? Does this mean you're already here then?

            I've been in Vegas since last Friday, but am staying with a friend to keep costs down for me during my stay.
