My VMworld Survival Kit

I'm very sorry for the lack of posts recently.  Summer, time with the family, secret projects I can't talk about yet, etc.

I have assembled a nice little survival kit for VMworld.  I won't be taking my laptop on the floor because it weighs too much and the battery life on it is crap.  It would be dead by lunchtime.  So, here is what I'll be taking in my bag.


  1. Palm Pre Plus - Main reason I bought this phone, FREE 3G Mobile Hotspot, love it.  I'll never own another phone without this feature
  2. iPod Touch - It is an older 2G iPod but it still works great
  3. New Trent IMP-500 Charging Pack - Plenty of juice to keep the Palm and iPod going!  This arrives in the mail today so I'm hoping it works out
  4. Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 - Best camera I've ever owned, period.  12x Zoom, 10 MegaPixel, and it takes INCREDIBLE HD Video with stereo sound, all in one device. I have an extra battery and a 32GB SD Card for it to hold the large files that it generates
  5. A plain old paper notebook (*gasp*) - The iPad Fairy hasn't made it to my house yet so old fashion pen and paper for me.

I'll be heading to VMworld on Sunday in time for the 5k run and the events Sunday evening.  I haven't even had a chance to look at my schedule; I might post that once I figure it out.

Feels almost kind of retro there.... :-)
