It rocked :-) Had a good time. Hmm... Highlights

- I'm featured in Wired Magazine for being totally insane.. first in line! (see http://www.wired.com/news/mac/0,2125,49525,00.html ) they've got the article there

- I had a fun time looking for this girl as part of a joke (for the AtAT gang) (see http://www.appleturns.com/viewermail/ the last article)

- Snuck into an Apple Invitation only party, met Steve Jobs (they had Grand Master Flash as their DJ and free drinks w00t)

- Walked by Aerosmith in downtown San Fran (hmm.. look a camera... Ohh.. Steve Tyler..)

- Enjoyed the keynote! (new iMacs! new iBooks! iPhoto! but no new G5 tower? bummer)
Threw out my Resume to a few people.. (might get a callback from this Apple recruiter I think I might have made an impression on)

- Met Acaben from Macslash and chated with him and briefly ran into the other macslashin' folk ( http://www.macslash.com )

- Had a nice chat with a big cheese from the Omni Group (you know Omniweb, OmniGraffle, all that jazz)

Uhh.. oh, and I spent $300 at strip clubs... (dirty me)

Ti,

That was you!?!?!

I was right there in line with you! As a matter of the fact, you gave your resume to Timber, one of the guys I was hanging with.

I was the geek with the shoulder holster for all me gear... black hat, leather jacket...

Heh... anyway... sounds like you had a better time that I did. Although I always love going to San Fran...

I'm curious -- which club(s)? I live in San Francisco and have yet to find one that isn't either horribly expensive or too scary-looking to enter...

Club Gold on Howard, it was clean, the girls were nice... and strangely a few of them are intelligent; if you meet Rose, the Italian Linux Talking Lap Dancing Babe (ILTLDB) let her know I said hi.. she'd better remember me as the tall blue eyed kid with a Yellow Dog Linux shirt on who dropped $200 for a little good turbo linux conversation (oh.. and a few lap dances)..

Actually, we talked about you after the Keynote... He was most impressed by your energy and Mac aficianado-ness... We had also already found the Wired article to see what they said about you...

I'll point him to this thread and mention you were asking about him...

I made a complete and utter fool in front of myself on camera for the MacAddict video -- should hit the Disc for the April issue.

*sighs* I wish I could go to macworld. The only kind of eventish thing that I've been to was the opening of the glendale apple store. I had my powerbook g4 and was wearing a shirt that was very similar to the employee shirt, many people thought I worked there. I answered their questions, and then told them that they should probably ask someone who actually is an employee about making a purchase .

P.S. - This is my first post ever here, just found the site a couple days ago =). Looking forward to wasting a lot of time here.
