Journal Journal: First Journal Entry in a Hotspot

Here I am in the midst of a sea of people migrating to that long silver craft that will take us over to Osaka Japan. That's right, I'm sitting here in an airport's Wifi hotspot writing a journal entry on slashdot. Pitiful as it might seem.

Anyway, I'm going to Japan to have some meetings with my prime contractor. Hopefully we can get this LCD fab running in Taiwan.
