Just a comment on what a strange day it’s been. I’m currently staying at a Sheraton in Madison, as tomorrow we’re doing live TechNet and other events at the Alliant Energy Center.
Today, however, in less than one hour, I’ll be doing a webcast from the hotel. Now… typically when I book my rooms I call the hotel to see if they have high-speed Internet. I’m a snob that way, I guess. <sigh> But mores if I’m going to do a webcast, I usually want to make sure that the Internet access is WIRED as opposed to WIRELESS.
Well… having not found any WIRED hotel rooms near the Alliant Energy Center, I decided to stay where the rest of my team were staying here at the Sheraton.
Problem: WiFi here has been up and down all day. Not good for webcasting at all.
Solution: The folks here are going to let me reserve the WIRED connection located in their Business Center here. They even provided me a phone for the audio portion of the webcast. (I’m heading down in just a couple minutes to set things up.)
In the meantime, I happened to see that the wireless from the hotel next door is available, so I’m using a low-signal, 1Mbps connection right now. I guess that’s the punch-line to an already interesting day.
Gotta run! Webcast time!
