The cab service in San Diego...

...leaves much to be desired. It took me 45 minutes to catch a cab to take me 2 miles. I should have walked, except there are really no discernable landmarks. All these haciendas look the same to me.

I'm really just too brain-fried to write anything. And I catch the redeye tomorrow night and arrive in Chicago Friday morning at 5 am, just in time to get an early start at the office.

I'm guessing tomorrow's post will have no vowels.

San Diego looks a lot like Chicago...

At least from the hotel window. Just substitute palm trees for the snow and low-slung Spanish architecture for the CTA tracks.

It was a pretty gray day here due to the ocean fog, but there's a breeze and the temperature is a comfortable 61°... the high for tomorrow will be 71°.

These middle-of-the-week business trips are always killers. Aside from a lunch break, I spend the whole day working and when I get back to the hotel I barely have enough energy to handle the e-mail. The tourist attractions are closed by the time I'm done, and I'm not really a bar-type person.

Spatial disorientation is also a problem. There aren't any eastern-city style huge skyscrapers here. Everything is spread out horizontally, not vertically. But I spent an hour walking around and the city impresses me as being clean and the folks are friendly.

This place is lousy with palm trees. I guess if you got it, flaunt it. If Chicago or Pittsburgh wanted to exploit their greatest natural resources, the road from the airport to the downtown would be lined respectively with corrupt or inept public officials.

Left coast bound...

I'm off to San Diego this week, my first venture to California. I've been to Las Vegas and Vancouver, British Columbia (which is actually about six degrees farther west than San Diego), but never to California proper.

Then it's back to Chicago on Friday and then to Pittsburgh on Saturday. My mother says I'll be spending most of the week resetting my watch.

Thought for the day, from Bill Maher: "Having a computer is like having a small, silicon version of Gary Busey on your desk. You never know what's going to happen."

Now I'm off to finish packing. Here's hoping there's no seismic or Al Qaeda activity for the next few days.

So there.  
The kgb@kgb.com e-mail address is now something other than kgb@kgb.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used kgb@kgb.com as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that kgb@kgb.com was no longer kgb@kgb.com but rather kgbarkes@gmail.com which is longer than kgb@kgb.com and more letters to type than kgb@kgb.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than kgb@kgb.com but actually just as functional as kgb@kgb.com? I sent e-mails from the kgb@kgb.com address to just about everybody I knew who had used kgb@kgb.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the kgb@kgb.com change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which kgb@kgb.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for kgb@kgb.com would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that kgb@kgb.com no longer is the kgb@kgb.com they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. kgb@kgb.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
