I've been craving a free internet connection since PVD, so that I can configure my laptop to make my time here at the conference easier. Here's what I need to do:
- Upgrade Firefox to 2.0.x
- Install the necessary extensions
- FireFTP (to access my server)
- Twitbin (to keep on a Twitterin')
- Zotero (an absolutely amazing bibliographic management tool. I could rant. I might later).
- Conference Wiki
- All my Google apps, like Gmail, Reader and Blogger
- Homepage for my Digital Libraries class (I did some reading summaries on the plane)
Oh, and since I was bumped to a different hotel because of construction, my credit card payment information has been lost in the struggle. This means a $700 hold on my debit card until we can get things squared away financially. I know SLA Boston will make everything work out alright, but I am moving right after I get home, and there is still that pesky lease to sign....
And as an aside, who should be riding the same bus as me to the same hotel, but Tony Stankus! This harkens back to last year, when I thought, "Gee, I wish I'd run into Tony", and BAM! there he walked by. With any luck we can get together for a drink or a meal, but we're both running around like crazy this year. At least I got to see him.
