Yufang and I are finishing our packing now, but loading the car will have to wait until tomorrow. I have put some things in the car, such as the three rotisserie cookers for my folks and Aunt Lettie-Anne and Uncle Doc. After loading up, I’ll have an approximately 11 hour drive ahead of me to reach Norcross.
I can confidently say that packing and preparing for a long drive is a lot worse than any other aspect of conferencing (including programming). That’s saying a lot, because I still have to whittle my 31 page monster from the deep essay on how World of Warcraft creates cosmopolitan subjects to 8 pages. I feel good about the impending revision, but I’m afraid that it will take most of Tuesday with me sitting some place comfy with a steady supply of coffee.
I called the Midtown Hotel tonight, and they said that they only offer wired Internet access (at almost $10/day). I know there are some places nearby that may have Internet access, but I don’t know what my connection will be like (if at all). I did want to blog from the conference, but my updates to DynamicSubspace.net may come in fits and spurts. If I cannot get a reliable connection, I will save my posts and run them all at once the following week.
