06:43 pm - The Week in...Something

Previous Entry Share

Tomorrow am, i will be off to MN for about a week. For five of those days (Wednesday am until Sunday late), i will be out at the SheraTree (Sheraton / DoubleTree) in Bloomington, MN for CONvergence, MN's larger scifi/comic/geek/etc convention. The SheraTree charges exorbitantly for thar Intarwebs, so i'll be out of touch electronically for nearly all of those days (i may try to bugger off to somewhere i can check my email at least once...five days is a long ass-time).

If you need me, you can phone me, though i can't guarantee i'll have the phone on my person or that i'll be able to hear it. Note: my voicemail goes right to Google. Do leave a message, and i'll get it eventually, but don't be stymied by what is evidently a confusing outgoing message. In an emergency, please phone the Sheraton / DoubleTree in Bloomington, MN and ask the front desk to put you through to "The Bridge." That's our main center of Operations and all things helpful at CON. They will be able to find me right quick. If it's the middle of the night and an emergency, you can ask the Sheraton to put you through to the room phone--the room is in my name, so easy enough.

Otherwise, tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday am, i will be at marmot Mansion and available there, by phone, or online.

C-ya.

Revised! birdfigment, below has informed me that for the first time, we'll have free WiFi (or possibly cabled net) in the hotel rooms. It will probably be slow has heck with thousands of geeks all trying to use it at once, but it will mean that i can check my email now and again ;)

I could be wrong about the wi-fi part - maybe it's plug-in internet? but anyway. Internet! And free! But you will be too busy to use it much of the time. :-)

Do you have a twitter account? I'll have my phone but it's got a UK number. The easiest way to reach me is to DM me on twitter, it'll get texted to me.
