PDC Day 3 (and some Day 2 Fun)

It's server day at the PDC. Lots of interesting IIS7 options that make it act much more like Apache, but at an even finer scale (think of loading mod_xxx for only a given site). There were also interesting auto-deployment tools, and debugging of those. Overall not much related to my day-to-day work, but still lots of fun.

Last night was the attendee party at Universal Studios. It was a little bit of a pain getting there. There was a line outside our hotel that went from the bus pickup, down the block, around the corner and then then half-way down that block. So instead of waiting, we ended up taking the train (subway). It ended up dumping us at the bottom of the hill that Universal Studios sits on, so after a hike we finally got there about 9:00 or so. A good time was had by all in the end.
