WIFI Details This is getting a little old, guys. Sure, just the other day I said I could put up with your inconsistencies for at least another few years, but I lied to myself, and I lied to you. I can’t, you need to figure this out. You need to be better. Here’s the way I see it: if you advertise that you have WiFi in your hotel rooms, then your hotel should have WiFi—and everything that society has come to associate with the idea of WiFi—in your hotel rooms. You can’t just have the “signal.” You need to have all the bits that go with it… like the internet. What you are doing is like advertising that you have a radio station and then only broadcasting static. Great for experimental post-noise listeners, but kind of a bait switch for most of us. And that’s what I feel like we have been getting here guys, a bait and switch. My ‘pute shows full signal, the little auditorium sign indicates a full house, but there’s no show, nada. Nothing behind the curtain. You have to do better.
Weather Today was the Time Trial, this is the day the riders roll to the start line on high-tech bikes built for cheating the wind. Well today the wind had enough. Today the wind wouldn’t be cheated. The wind was especially spiteful during the women’s race. Pop-up tents were lifted like kites, hats carried like autumn leaves, and these high tech bikes, these wind tunnel tested future machines? Well let’s just say that they were bullied by the wind. Other than that it was sunny, pleasant, and a lot like the previous four days.
