MEC Day 3 Report

Party time last night - HP (among others) sponsored a food-drink-and-playathon at the ESPN Zone, where I'd met some of the local folks on Monday. The difference was no Monday Night Football crowd to deal with, and all of the games were available to play for free. The NHL2Nite game, in which you shoot pucks at a movable goalie was way cool.

Finally spent a little time in the vendor area and chatted with a couple of our providers. They're always very happy to talk to (and give free stuff to) an employee of one of their big accounts.

The CommNet area was down during the afternoon due to a server crash. At least you knew they had plenty of people around who could fix it.

Hey! We sponsored something cool? I feel so warm and fuzzy!

Last year when you were still Compaq you sponsored a pretty decent party at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando. It's good to work in the same town as (and buy a buttload of computers and servers from) a good party host. :-)

Of course, that's the primary thing I look for in an employer. Good parties. Ya' just can't beat it.
