#Techwave 2010: Day 2: Random Observations

More complaints about the hotel. They gave me a rolling desk chair with a broken roller. It's worse than not being able to roll at all. And the Internet speed from the hard wired connection isn't much to write home about. In fact, it doesn't seem to be any faster than the wireless connection (in fact the speed test I ran showed that the wireless connection was faster!). Hardly seems adequate for a technical conference.

More an observation than a complaint, I seem to be a room equipped for the hearing impaired. There is a light on the wall to indicate when the phone is ringing. I'm also the only room on the floor (that I've noticed) that has a doorbell. Not sure what it does yet, I haven't tried it yet.

Note to Sybase: Please, please, please make power outlet available for the attendees in the meeting rooms. You give them a USB stick with the presentations on it so people can follow along on their laptops. You schedule sessions all day long. You realize that most people have laptops that will only run 1.5 to 3.0 hours without recharging?
