The trip so far has been a lot of fun. As I mention I spent a good chunk of yesterday with Charles and Matt. Then had dinner with chardin. Later got together with brandyeileen and some of her friends. We seem to be quickly developing a close friendship.
I'm going to be here for another day because Boston weather has canceled my return flight. No plans so far today. I may develop some, or may just relax.
Time to get a new laptop; Linux works on this one. (Not really; I'm quite happy with the laptop.) I just upgraded to 2.6.10 and found that it works. In particular suspend to memory seems to work. Also, a lot of the fiddly little IBM bits like control of bluetooth, control of various hotkeys, control of video are now understood by Linux.
