I will also bring a router, a switch and a box full of cables, just in
case anyone needs them. I'll also bring my B'Berry, which I can tether
to my laptop, though Verizon's vaunted "high speed" is not all that
fast. It IS a lot faster in Colorado than here in Wyoming, where data
rates are measured in bytes per fortnight.
Actually, I don't see why I would need net access. I think a pair of
ears and a notepad (paper type) will probably be all I need.
I don't need table space, though it would be nice. I can write on my
knees pretty well.
Also looking forward to a fun and informative evening.
