Comdex Fall 1999
My little annual trip to Vegas
If you don't know my reports, you can find other ones here,
or look at my report for last year's comdex or
the few pictures that I have for Comdex fall
Eh, you're late
What took you so long?
Yes, I know, I wrote these pages a week after comdex was over. With being in the
process of buying a house, my part time job at
VA Linux Systems (only 12 hours a day
), and Thanksgiving, I was a bit busy.
Yeah I know: I suck...
So, about the show. As explained in the
rest of Comdex page, Comdex was much smaller this
year, which had the advantage of making the linux presence even more noticeable.
You can read my report on the following topics:
The Linux Business Expo
The Penguin Playoffs
The rest of Comdex
I'm wondering what Comdex is going to become if this shrinking trend continues.
I guess it will simply become just another computer show, but in a location
that makes it a bit more appealing to visitors
As for the linux presence, we've reached our goals. At this point, all we can
do is get bigger every year.
Oddly enough, as I'm finishing this page around 05:00, I wrote all the pages
without a single caffeinated penguin mint. I'm not quite sure what happened
Either way, do point out errors and omissions if you find any.
As for the unpleasant warning, I'll make it short: you have to ask before
taking any of my pictures. If it's for non commercial use, I'll let you use
them for free, if not we may work out some deal. I'm not making money from my
pages (although I did get a couple of gifts from people who I wish to thank
here), so I'm not too cool with people making money off my work with no value
I do know however, that you feel bad that I had to order that
Empeg all with my own money, so you will
feel better by sending me a check to help re-imburse me
Update: Mark Bolzern from LinuxMall just made a generous donation to help pay
for my trip and time at Comdex.
Thanks a lot Mark.
Ted Tso and I, ready to shoot the enemy
I also need help to pay off my Nerf Guns
'Till next time
