I didn't bring Marko. I did bring the wine.

Wine and cats - a couple of the small joys in life. I'm sure Marko appreciated remaining at home though.

The suite I'm in contains wine glasses. How cool is that?

Glad to know the hotel has its priorities straight!

Why were you/are you in Austin?

Building out a new datacenter in a schmantzy building with a "cone of silence" bio-metric mantrap and four-levels of security. Its pretty cool, but the 16-hours days are quite exhausting.

I've been responsible this trip for installing the VMware ESX hosts and teaching myself NIC-bonding and learning how to apply VLAN-tagging to virtual interfaces on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (hint: its very similar to how we used to do it in Solaris.)

How's your week?

NIC bonding: do you use latex for this endeavor?

I'll soon be a student of computer networking. I still have to get through this and summer semester, but I'll be able to follow in whester's footsteps and attend Athens State where one may obtain a BS in Computer Networking.

Is my Wikifu strong?

I'm THRILLED that people like you exist - I would swallow my own tongue if I had to be a network engineer, nonetheless, its a very important job and integral to any environment.

I know, right? I drank most of it my last night there!

Yeah, I'm a fan of box wine. I *say* it's because of the ability of just having one glass and it staying fresh. But who am I kidding? I'm cheap and I never drink just one glass.

You're preaching to the choir here. I'm right there with ya!

I love that post!

Yeah, my ex-boyfriend was a chef and, of course, a wine connoisseur. I am very much a foodie and *love* wine.

Pre-kids I would drop $30 or so on wine every night (that was the low end...but still). Now, due to quantity needed and thriftiness I have downgraded to usually a double bottle of Australian something or other.

I've almost burned off my taste buds enough with the stuff to not mind it too much....
