So some of you might be wondering why there hasn’t been much posts from me at MIX, the hottest Microsoft conference around. There was IE8, there was Silverlight, there was DeepZoom and much more.
Simply put, my laptop died the second I arrived in Las Vegas Airport. CPR didn’t work. Mouth to mouth didn’t work. It did spring back to life for just a second when the director of Windows communications touched it, but the magic wore off pretty quickly.
As I’m typing this on Rafael’s laptop (owe him dinner or something), Daniel from Microsoft’s TSG (technical support group – geeks for geeks) is helping me install a fresh copy of Windows
Seven Vista on it. In the least it means I’ll have notepad to write with, more might be pushing it.
Speaking of which, I also accidentally deleted all of my Flickr photos from this morning’s keynote because of the crappy hotel internet connection falsely not displaying any pictures. I’m now reuploading everything. Yeah, uploading 800MB of photos is pretty much the most exciting thing I’ve done in Vegas so far.
