The Trouble With Travel: Hotel WiFi

As I have mentioned previously, I travel a lot for work as a sales engineer.  I am all over the US visiting customers and most of my stays are at least one night, if not for close to a week.  That means I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms and working on both […]

The Trouble With Travel: Taxi from Hell

Outside of being a geek, my other passion is martial arts. This week, my family traveled to Philadelphia to compete in another big tournament in our circuit, NASKA (North American Sports Karate Association).
