OOPSLA 2005 - Day zero

This was my travel day and it had lots of mishaps. Security at our airport does not post any signs stating you should take your computer out of its brief case and put it in a separate bin and they only get you when the screener sees it on the x-ray. So my stuff got another round trip through scanning. Good thing we had lots of time. Then the rental car pickup took almost 30 minutes and the first car had a slow leak in the tire. All toll it took 2 hours to get from the airport to the hotel - about 10 minutes with a cab. Then the hotel had suffered a power outage during the day and their computers where still down. Big line at checkin and we got the wrong room.

I have had good things come from bad starts. So I am hopeful.
