It's almost time for The Vaporware Marathon.(tm) It's like running a 10k while being stuck in an enormous Ikea. With travel luggage obstacles.  Eight day warning.

  2. If you mean what I think you mean, then I spent a day or two at one of those back in, if memory serves, '87. As a casual attendee. 'Twas right overwhelming.
    My family finally had its Great Adventure, so: greetings from Boyds Creek, Tennessee! It's very much not Silicon Valley here, but we haven't properly started de-stressing yet, as the four-day RV trip is followed by unpacking, shopping, preparing to return the RV, trying to get the cats settled in (two out of three think they're home as of this morning), and all the other stuff. At least the big thunderstorm happened during the night, and not during our getting-stuff-done hours.

  3. Wow. Congratulations. You escaped. Tennessee is suppose to be super nice. I look forward to hearing how you like it.

    The first few years of The Vaporware Marathon were overwhelming. I used to do it all in one day. Take the first flight out of SFO, and the last flight out of Vegas. There is pretty much no way you can do that now.
