Yup.... anther adventure in LA. THis time, unlike last PDC I didn't have to spend 10 hours or whatever it was stranded in an airport half way! However this time, I started to wonder as intersection after intersection downtown had flashing red lights and people trying to remember how a four way stop worked. [Now, I'm sure we've all had experiences where the traffic lights have been out, and we were shocked at people's lack of ability to resolve the issues of a 4 way stop, well in LA, it's much much worse! Anyways.... Finally made it to the hotel which had just received power, oh just lost it, oh wait, nope we have it! The officialy news from www.ktla.com read:
" A wide-ranging power outage, set off when a cable was accidentally cut, darkened large sections of downtown Los Angeles and many parts of the San Fernando Valley shortly after noon today, authorities said. "
As luck would have it, my web hosting company who is usually on the other side of the continent from me, apparently is near by and suffered some down time from the event. All appears well and it's back to the business of the PDC. Going to be stopping by an event hosted by the Wintellect and SPI folks before heading over to and helping out with the INETA BOF (Birds Of a Feather) Sessions that are taking place. You should go check them out! (They're at the main conference center)
