YAPC Day 0

[ #19296 ]
Arrived late at Buffalo, thanks to thunderstorms in Pittsburgh. Went straight to the wings dinner, thanks to the driving services of O-Dogg (Jon Orwant). Some observations:
  • hot wings are bloody hot, even when they're in the mild wings' spots
  • James Duncan (Mr Fotango) is engaged, quite possibly to a supermodel, and apparently is so disoriented by wedding plans that he thought it'd be a great idea to bring his fiance to YAPC
  • Rocco (Mr POE) brought his whole family. I'm trying to convince him to bring them to Portland so they can meet my family at long last--they've known each other through talk.bizarre since the last millennium.
  • Chris Shiflett (Mr PHP Security) is here, thanks to the persuasive skills of Geoff Young (Mr mod_perl Security)
  • It is rumoured that Lenzo (Mr YAPC himself) will be here this week. Fingers crossed!

    Well, yeah. What's the point otherwise?
    • Had to wonder that when I had "hot wings" at an "American" restaurant in Kiev. (Last place we ate before coming home.) They offered three alleged strengths of hotness, and we requested the highest, with a special request to the waitress to have them made as hot as they could. She got audibly nervous and said, "Oh, no; they'd be too hot," but we insisted. Whether or not she passed on the request is debatable, but the wings came back BLAND! Fortunately one of my travelling companions never went anywhere
