why no wireless in the rooms?
The hotel doesn't provide wireless internet service in the rooms, so you have to go to the lobby, and use a paid wireless service to get online.

I would think that this is usually okay, but when you have a computer-related conference, with a big group of geeks gathering all over the world, you'd think that it'll be better to have it in your own rooms.

One av researcher was using his super-duper-digital-camera (the big kind, not the compact digicams) and zooming into the monitors of the laptops, and screaming "this is a new kind of spyware!". Geek joke.

The wireless itself is not cheap too.. think after conversion here and there it's about 1 US cent per minute. hehee...
