Eric Rzewnicki == edrz. I have a penta account ... not sure if the above
two are one item or seperate issues. It may not matter, see below.

pasted at the end here.)

-Eric Rz.

01:19 < edrz> so, i was _supposed_ to be arriving in Glasgow in 1.5
hours or so.
01:19 < edrz> but,
01:19 < edrz> my flight from DC to Boston was delayed about 2.5 hours
01:20 < edrz> and by the time I got my bags and across to the other
side of the airport
01:20 < edrz> flyglobspan staff were nowhere to be seen, heard or
spoken to
01:21 < edrz> no one to check me in, no one to give me a boarding pass
and noone to talk to
01:21 < edrz> to ask them to wait or send someone out.
01:21 < edrz> so, back to the other side of the airport
01:21 < edrz> and Delta was just about as helpful.
01:21 < edrz> all they would do was send me home.
01:22 < edrz> which i settled for in defeat
01:22 < edrz> but,
01:22 < edrz> to add insult to injury
01:22 < edrz> they lost my luggage
01:22 < edrz> so
01:22 < edrz> now
01:22 < edrz> i've been awake for 21 hours.
01:22 < edrz> i have no luggage
01:23 < edrz> no gear
01:23 < edrz> and i'm nowhere near edinburgh
01:23 < edrz> at this point I don't know if I'll be making it at all.
01:23 < edrz> I could possibly get a flight to Edinburgh tomorrow
01:24 < edrz> and be there by Friday morning
01:24 < edrz> but Delta says they "might" deliver my bags to my home
"if" they find them sometime later this morning.
01:26 < edrz> if they do, i'll see if flyglobespan will still honor my
return fare.
01:26 < edrz> however, it's tough to swallow an additional U$D1000+
for a one way ticket.
01:27 < edrz> so, after this and my hellish experience at LAC2007 I'm
wondering if maybe
01:27 < edrz> just maybe,
01:27 < edrz> i'm just not meant to do this video at Free Software
conferences thing.
01:28  * edrz goes to attempt to sleep
