Arrived in San Jose
Just in case you were thinking I disappeared of the face of the planet
My hotel in San Diego only allowed me to get a wireless connection if I a sat on the floor by the door. Shame really as I had a huge suite complete with bedroom, kitchen and living room and ended up sitting on the floor when I needed to do some work.
I moved out a day early to San Jose. Being an idiot I booked a flight to San Francisco and ended up getting with a $100 bus ride to the hotel. Oh well.
]]> The new hotel is even bigger than the last and has an internet connection (hurrah) but… they don’t do room service. So today I am going to go out to the supermarket and get some supplies. I can’t help think I am doing this business trip all wrong. Surely I should be dining in fine restaurants and living it up. Perhaps I am just getting old.
I am also without a car, I don’t feel brave enough to drive around alone as I have never been good with directions. With my luck I would go out for a drive and never be able to find the hotel again. I would end up living rough on the streets when the gas runs out.
So I am limited in my ability to get around. That makes a mess of my plans to meet up with people for beers while I am out here.
I know there were problems with SkypeWeb over the last few days. I’m a bit remote from the problem here, but from what I understand the traffic suddenly went up by over 300% and we weren’t able to cope with the unanticipated load.
I know the guys have been working on the problem and have taken the necessary steps to add additional capacity to cope with the demand and will continue to monitor the situation closely.
My apologies if you were inconvenienced.
