- I could work on my presentation. This would be OK but not ideal since I don't have internet conectivity to look stuff up.
- I could work on my lightning talk: "PyAsshole: Simulating a partial information non trump card drinking game in Python." I'll do some of that but I only have five hours of batteries. [if you aren't familiar see here for one set of rules]
- I could bring Neal Stephenson's Anathem but I could fit two or three other books in my bag instead of that door stop; I'll do that because if I can't get into his book I'm stuck with it.
I'll likely do a mix of PyAsshole and books with at least one of those being Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress which is frequently cited but which I've never read.
