Sorry for the non-posting on this blog all last week. I was on vacation with the family in Myrtle Beach. Lots of fun, sun, beach and no staring at the computer all day long. Although, I’m not a beach person, and I must say that I’m kinda glad to not be hot, sweaty, wet and covered with sand. In other words, it’s good to be back.
Now I need to get caught up. 2300 emails to go through, and that’s after the spam filter ate about 50% of it. Mmmmmmm.
So what did I think about on vacation? Here are some thoughts.
1. I paid $25 bucks for a week of wifi access in my condo from ConnectFreely.com. Which connected pretty much 1.0 speed (sometimes) and only allowed me to download email, not even send it. When I tried to send it would send, but not be delivered. When I called them and asked for a special mail server or something they said it wasn’t needed. Yeah, ok.
What’s silly is that on my way back home we stopped at a 3-star, run down, podunk hotel in Beckley, WV, and they had awesome, free wifi. Go figure.
Observation: When will we finally have high-quality wifi access everywhere in the USA? 2, 3, 5 years?
Observation: Video is going to be HUGE. Start doing it now. Seriously.
3. Looks like Loren Feldman decided to go with Blip.tv. Good choice. I love their stuff.
Observation: None really. I like Blip.
4. This video is awesome. Go watch it.
Observation: You will laugh if you’re a geek like me.
5. Twitter is truly an extension of my blogging. When I was able to get connectivity on vacation (see #1 above), I tried to load up and post a tweet about what I was doing, and easily catch up on what was going on in my little Twit-world. However, I was unable to get Techmeme all week which did in fact give me the shivers.
Observation: Even away from my computer life, it’s hard to really be away.
