Myself and SugarKane celebrated the first beers of PubCon 4 tonight. (eg: I probably shouldn't be posting at this time. lol. If you log in and find anything really really weird, it can be safely discounted.)

- hotel - most excellent. Everything it was billed to be.
- hotel bar - rather small, but cozy. Micro brewery within one block!
- odds are running 40-60 on a certain WebmasterWorld member making it into the states ;-)
- Top new SEO tips and tricks...as if...you had to be there ;-)

>even the Florida Keys

We're airport-centric and adverse to high tourism months to boot. I was once asked if I could put one together in the Mid-Atlantic states ...I could, but it quickly becomes a logistics nightmare.

Is there WiFi or Network access within the rooms? If there isn't local wifi is anyone picking up any wireless networks nearby ;)

Yes on network access. Free if you sign up up for their "Wyndham By Request" thingy... I signed up today no problem for tomorrow's arrival (800-347-7559). Plus free local and long distance calls, etc.

Speaking to you from my room at the Wyndham so the network access is working ;-)

Have heard that there's WiFi in the lobby but haven't tried it yet.

If anyone else is here and there's any plans for a get together - I'll check sticky from time to time - otherwise I have plenty of work to do! ;-(

lorax and chrisnrae, Either they'll be anxious for some new blood by the time we arrive on Friday... or, they'll be hungover, grumpy and talked out.

If anyone sees ciml make sure you bring your logarithmic calculator. I think he has forgotten his.

1 Canadian Newbie all packed and OMW first thing tomorrow.

See everyone down there about noon. Where does everyone hang out during the day?

I assume the pub/bar once it opens.

The Yankees are coming!

The Yankees are coming!

Just getting over my cold since catching it on Opening Day at Yankee Stadium almost 2 wks ago when it was about 36-degrees and I sat there for six innings. Way duh.

See you all Saturday -- I have presents -- party favors -- I'll do my best to pass them around.
