See you in Las Vegas

Some personal information about the conference in Las Vegas. I have been there more than twenty times (on business, I don't gamble), and have even stayed in the Tropicana (pre-renovation). I wonder if they still number the floors 1-12 then 24 and up, to make the upper floors seem higher, and of course to avoid unlucky 13?

I just booked my hotel room. Easy to do on-line, just be aware that their calendars show Monday as the first day of the week, not Sunday.

My Recent Interesting Experience

On Sunday, Juy 2, I was rushed to hospital with a sudden life threatening medical problem. It was all over in 48 hours and I am home now, feeling fine.

Kat and Landis came to visit me in the hospital and Landis made a VR panorama of the scene. Notice how happy he and Kat look.

It was interesting to see where my mind went under the influence of medication and stress. I posted this account to the World Wide Panorama list on Wednesday, July 5.

Thanks to everyone who has written to wish me well. I really am just about back to normal already after my wild weekend.
