Slow day

I didn't do much yesterday. Since the meeting got called off, all I really had to do was get today's presentation turned in for copying. I did that, then went to a place in Brooklyn that bronxelf_ag001 had mentioned the day before, Junior's, for lunch. Matzoh ball soup and half a pastrami sandwich with an egg cream, not bad. The cheesecake was something else: Junior's is to cheesecake what Lindey's is to steak. Damn, that was great stuff. Rich, smooth, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth, and a slice twice as large as the usual restaurant cheesecake. It's a good thing I'd only had the half a sandwich, because I finished the cheesecake even though I felt stuffed by the end.

After that, I went back to SHARE to use the free high-speed wireless and talk to folks. I did attend one session, given by Sam Knutson of the CBT Tape mainframe software collection, and then out to dinner with him and a few others. Shelley's Steakhouse was good, with decent live jazz (that made conversation difficult at times)...but the steak was no better than Lindey's, and I expect to be blown away for $60.

I haven't seen the segment that aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Did anyone out there?

I'm debating wearing the TRON costume to give the talk this morning. Sam ran a bit of the first Kimmel appearance, and I got a round of applause for it. I think it'd go over pretty well. I'm not sure of the logistics, though: where would I change? I don't have a room at the conference hotel, after all.
