San Francisco Here I Come
Posted By dane On June 13, 2003 @ 9:51 pm In Blog | No Comments
It’s vacation time. The kids’ last day of school is today and Sunday we’re flying to San Francisco, just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a week at Costa Azul . We haven’t been there before but we know two families that have and they say it’s great. A little rustic, but great.
Rustic is fine by me. As long as it’s not touristy. Henry and I will be taking surfing lessons. Jennifer and Abby plan to go on a hike through the rain forest. We’ll all be spending a lot of time at the beach. I don’t think I’ll be able to get online while I’m there, but I am bringing a laptop. That’s because right after I get back Patrick and I will be flying to Washington D.C. to speak with the US Secret Service electronic crimes task force, ECSAP  on Monday, June 23. I’ve been downloading material on Microsoft’s Palladium and Intel’s Trusted Computing Platform and I’ll be using Keynote on my old G3 Powerbook to create a presentation for the Secret Service. TSS meets The SS.
I had to send back the Nikon D100, but I’ve got an Olympus E-20N  and 512 MB of compact flash I’ll be bringing with me to Mexico. It’s a high-end prosumer camera, no interchangable lenses, but the CCD is five megapixels and the built-in optics are quite nice – f2-2.4, 35-140mm – so the pictures look great. I’ll post some when I get back on the 24th.
Meanwhile Brett Larson will fill in for me on Call for Help. Kevin Rose and Jessica Corbin will co-host on The Screen Savers with Patrick. See you on Tuesday, June 24!
