Moof gave me a heads up the other day that a new version of Rawdog was working its way out. Version 1.5 was released today, fixing some timeout problems. I’m still recovering from Foo, so I probably won’t upgrade my aggregator for a day or two.
Day: October 13, 2003
I’m getting ready to hop on the plane. I’m sitting at the gate here at
SFO. There happens to be a closed starbucks about 50 feet behind me.
Luckily they don’t seem to turn off their t-mobile hotspot when they shut
down. This is a good thing, as I have a 2 megabit connection here at the
Sounds like they’re calling my flight.
It’s going to be weird going from a place like SF which is just awash
with Wi-Fi to the DC area where coverage is spotty at best.

I’m on my laptop. Using Wi-Fi. At McDonald’s. I’m across the street
from Fry’s in Palo Alto. Sometimes technology just RULES!
Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. I’m down in Palo Alto after
doing chowder, Fleet Week featuring the Blue Angels and seeing San
Fransisco with Russ.
It’s been a long but wonderful weekend. I’ve got to head back up to SFO
to hop on the redeye back to the east coast. I’m not looking forward to
I picked up Halo for $39.99 today at Fry’s. I almost picked up a used
beat Zaurus 5500, but they wanted freaking list price for a beat up one
with all kinds of stuff missing. Oh well.
The best part is that I didn’t pay for it. I asked if I could purchase
wireless access at the counter or if I had to do it online with Wayport.
The person behind the counter gave me a coupon for free access. I don’t
remember which number it is, but I bought the two cheesburger meal. I
think I’ll get a shake to go.
I’m going to finish my fries and head out, but hopefully I’ll be able
to hop online at the airport. I don’t leave until after 11:30pm PDT and I
don’t get back to DC until after 8:30am EDT. After hearing about Russ’
flight, it does not seem as painful.
