Upon my arrival at the hotel here in Portland, I was somewhat disappointed to discover that they didn't have broadband connections in the rooms; I was going to have to use dial-up. It turns out that the hotel's guide to services is out-of-date; in fact, the hotel has free wi-fi. So I'm sitting in my room, in a reasonably nice reading chair in a well-lighted corner, posting this entry while watching the US Figure Skating Championships on ESPN. Life is good. Update: Whoops! 'Twasn't the Nationals, as I thought; it was Skate America. A Japanese fellow just one the men's competition. Posted by Will Duquette at October 24, 2005 07:22 PM
