With a snow-white pillow for my big fat head

This week is IETF. Minneapolis isn't really high on my list of places to go in March (Paris in August seems more interesting, but the mumbling makes that sound unlikely), and combined with failing to get into the conference hotel and the early hour the skywalk closes, I'm just sort of grumpy.

2 nights ago I had an interesting talk with someone after dinner, and have some neat ideas, most of which are probably not patent-encumbered. Probably even some value in them. I don't have the time to do them.

My boss showed up yesterday and last night I had dinner with several of my former coworkers (at least 2 who didn't overlap). One had some ideas which were very... not focused on a useful direction for enterprise software. He did have one I'd like to implement, but have no time to.

You know that day when you realize you will never make it big, that you missed the opportunities for any such thing, possibly several times over?

Today is that day.
