Welcome to OSCON 2004
Arrived in Portland today, weather is quite nice. Got a room on the 4th floor with a balcony this year (note the nice view of Mt. Hood)! Maybe I can figure out how to get up and down without using the elevator, which I recall from last year can get bogged down with the hundreds of people trying to get to and from their rooms.
Going up to get registered soon and then over to Music Millennium for my traditional conference music purchase. Probably be good to get some decent food too, so far have only eaten airline pretzels and a few pieces of candy that the family snuck into my bag last night after I had packed. Looking back at last year's preconference notes for places a friend recommended.
Hmm . . . seems like I haven't written about my traditional conference music purchase, will have to do that later.
Update: Posted a note about the tradition.
