Citrix IForum 2005 Day 2

October 10, 2005 – Monday started with the alarm clock provided with the room. Since Las Vegas is two hours earlier than Okc, by the time the alarm went off, I was ready to get up. I joined Larry for breakfast provided by the conference – sausage, egg and cheese biscuits and various breads, juices, fruits and coffee.

The morning was taken up with the keynote speech of the conference. We got to sit for 3 hours (with one 20 minute break) and listen to how wonderful Citrix is and to hear a 50,000 foot view of the next year’s advances and products. I can’t tell you how exciting it was – I really can’t. Next came lunch and more talking with vendors in the Exhibition Hall. We had fajitas and I got a mini USB hub — yippee. Then another afternoon of Citrix-oriented sessions (I’m writing this during a session on creating isolation environments to run applications that either conflict with other applications that could be installed or that have very specific, usually outdated, requirements for associated applications like MDAC).

After the sessions ended I skipped the networking reception (Larry went and said he was one of about 10 people that showed up). I went in search of some fun. I took a cab down the strip a ways and looked at some of the casinos there. I saw that Circus Circus has $5 blackjack tables. When walking between casinos, I talked with some friendly homeless guys - I even gave one a buck. I’m such a philanthropist. I ended up back at the room fairly early but didn’t feel like paying $12 for another day of high-speed access (the conference has free wireless internet). So I Just read and went to bed.
