Morning Wake Up Alarms: Yes, ALARMS

I’ve been running on an ever diminishing amount of battery since yesterday morning, which was when my VAIO power adaptor decided to go boom. And it did go boom. If you’ve heard stories about a strange foreign man setting off the smoke alarms in one of Sydneys highest regarded hotels then they may be true. I’m not going to comment. EVER.

So this morning I made an unplanned trip to the Sydney Sony Centre and spent 200AUD on a new transformer. The staff were helpful (they even undid it and tested it with my laptop) but it’s still a cost I’d rather not incur. Still, not having wireless at the conference is a PITA and it was hindering my ability to find my way around the town.
