Maybe never another confernce
For most techies, it's generally not good to be associated with a virus of any sort. But folks at Sun Microsystems and organizers of this week's JavaOne software conference in San Francisco may have felt especially queasy when they heard that local health authorities were tracking an outbreak of stomach flu at the Moscone Center in recent days.
With up to 70 cases reported, the city health department said it suspects the culprit may be the highly contagious norovirus - a real virus, not the computer kind.
Symptoms usually last only one or two days, according to a bulletin that city officials issued this week. But they can include vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, aches and even low-grade fever. And the virus can spread easily from contact with someone who hasn't washed his or her hands, or from touching a contaminated surface.

It's nice to find out most of the choices (e:enknot) and I have made are also backed by other industry professionals.
The food was tasty. I even got my own personal size chocolate cake. Somehow a pigeon got into the conference. I fed it some cookies.
These dolls are so damn freaky.

ruby on rails
Woman1: this is crazy. It used to be an event that promoted microsoft. Didn't he see how many peole raised their hand for .net
woman2: well, I am going to try ruby if it's the future.
woman1: I don' think microsoft will support it. All our servers are microsoft, and it's too expensive to switch.

So I made it
They just asked developers what they are using. Hands went up and percentages you would expect for microsoft's .net, php,and java technology. What surprised me that only like two people raised their hands for rails. I was totally surprised.
Did you guys know tthat less than 5% of people publish more than once a week on their blogs?

I know it's not just me being picky because I hear other people complaining and so far a couple people have even challenged the speakers on what they were saying.
In the future, I would rather attend a developers conference, like the PHP one right near by or the database DB world conference in Toronto last month.
At least california is cool, sushi is cheap and they gave me a free ipod for registering early.
