PDC Day 02 (An early morning start) by Bil Simser

I just woke up after dozing off in my room. It's 2:30AM and HBO is just finishing up with The Terminal starring Tom Hanks. Some days I feel like Viktor Navorski. Wonder if I could fall asleep at PDC and live there for a week undetected? Maybe I'll try...

PDC Day 01 (Holy walking Batman!) by Bil Simser

Today I capped out at 14,592 steps. That's 11.04 miles according to ped-o-metre. That's a crapload of walking and I spent a lot of time just messing about at the SharePoint lounge. I expect it to be bigger later this week. It was a great day and there...

PDC Day 01 (Lost in Translation) by Bil Simser

Good morning! The night went well with no blackouts, earthquakes (where are the earthquakes!) and very little food as parts of this town seem to roll up at 9PM. I'm staying at the Miyako hotel, not an "official" PDC hotel but it was what Expedia suggested...

PDC Day 00 (yawn, it's been a long day) by Bil Simser

Pop quiz. Who would be the person at PDC to lose the most digital cameras? The second question is how quickly (and often) can someone lose a digital camera at PDC? The answer is me on both parts. Well, almost. I was at PDC this evening after getting my...

PDC Day 00 (A new camera) by Bil Simser

While the day is just winding down, I managed to find the incredible toy district here in L.A. and replace my lost camera. L.A. seems to be broken down into districts. There's the bank district (where most of the office buildings and banks are, so appropriately...

PDC Day 00 (Later that same afternoon) by Bil Simser

Wow. What is it with me and trips? I come to a new city and first there's a terrorist threat, then I lose my camera and now there was a power blackout. I was heading back from PDC to the hotel and we started to hit various traffic lights that were out...

PDC Day 00 (AFT) by Bil Simser

Hi guys. I'm blogging from PDC after registering this morning. The setup is pretty freakin' impressive (and huge). WiFi everywhere. Geeks everywhere (not a good looking woman to be had) and more PDAs and laptops than you can shake a stick at. Tommorow...

PDC Day 00 (AM) by Bil Simser

It was a dark and stormy night and all around.. oh wait. No, wrong blog post. It's sunny and 80,000 degrees here in L.A. and the night was quiet. No earthquakes or terrorist attacks from some valley guy (yeah, I picked a great time to visit a new city...

PDC Day -01 by Bil Simser

Well that went well. Checked into the Calgary airport at 4pm for a 6pm flight. Hey, it's Calgary. Expect to show up about 20 minutes before the flight for domestic and an hour (or so) for international. I don't know what it is with our airport, but waits...
