March Meeting report: it's on fire!

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at March 5, 2007 9:12 PM

As some of you know, I am in Denver for the APS March Meeting. I haven't been liveblogging since I couldn't get on the network at the convention center (it doesn't seem to have the capacity for N thousand physicists with laptops) but I may post a few updates.

Meanwhile, someone has pulled the fire alarm in the hotel. The fire alarm takes the form of a recording that says:

May we have your attention please. This is the building management. An alarm has been activated. The fire department has been notified and is responding. For your safety, the elevators will not operate until the alarm is investigated. Please stand by for further instructions.

...over and over again, with no delay between loops. I might evacuate just out of annoyance.

They're just trying to encourage collaboration.

Ah, infinite repeat... It warms the heart.
