San Diego Trip

Angela and I took a trip to one of our favorite getaway spots a weekend or two ago: the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. The place is magnificent. This time I shelled out for a corner room upgrade, which gave us an awesome room with three separate windows overlooking the ocean, the marina, and even a bit of downtown. Nearby are a bunch of great restaurants and other fun things to do in downtown San Diego. Here are some photos I took looking out our windows:

One thing I like about this Hyatt is the broadband Internet access offered in each room via a nice ethernet cable sitting next to the phone. Yes, part of the vacation was spent leisurely surfing the net. In anticipation, I picked up a Linksys WRT54G combo NAT router/wireless base station ($40 after rebate at Circuit City), which I'd been meaning to pick up anyway to hack around with, so each of our laptops and my PC could share the connection. Why my PC? So I could play a few hours of World of Warcraft. Yes, I did haul my entire gaming box down there. Hey, I just got that gorgeous 20" wide aspect monitor you see there (for $486 from Dell, a really great price, but unfortunately a limited time offer)--there's no way I was leaving that at home.
