I had a few drinks at the welcome shindig last night but then crashed pretty early (or by my bodies recking, very very late). The first day has been full of some interesting stuff. I've given up on note taking instead preferring to take notes on the laptop. This does however mean descending like a vampire on spare sockets between sessions to slurp up a few more joules of energy for my rather hungry machine.
Net access should in theory be very good. However the organisers in their wisdom have gone for full WPA which isn't supported on a wide range of drivers (certainly not my trusty Lucent). As a result I've not been able to be networked at the conference. I have access here but it's a little flaky and keeps dropping out, especially on the VPN.
Time to head back in for the Intel welcome party :-)
