Wow. It's been a really long time since my last diary. Just got back from COMDEX last night. It was both fun and not fun. We stayed at a little motel (Best Western Mardi Gras) that I cannot with a straight face reccomend to anyone, even my enemies (according to one of our cab drivers, when the cabby convention comes to Vegas, they keep the prostitutes at the Mardi Gras... hmmm).

Had some really good food -- lots of good (and expensive!) restaurants over there. Lost $20. (I knew I should've have even tried in the first place :-) GameWorks was pretty fun.. $25 for 2 hours of unlimited arcade play. They have lots of games.. played Dance Dance Revolution with Tuomas -- I have to get this game for the PlayStation. We were playing on the beginner level, then some kid came after us and played on the Expert level and kicked butt -- there was a huge crowd. Then Tuomas and I went back and tried the "Standard" level, and bombed out horribly. The crowd dispersed. :-)

COMDEX itself was good; we were a very popular booth. All our big demos had large crowds. Lots of interesting ideas and questions were brought up by people about both Red Carpet and Evolution; we have lots of food for thought until LinuxWorld in January.

I'm flying home to California on Tuesday for a week.. it will be good to get out of here for a while.
