I've put up some photos of my trip so far: http://steve.cooleysekula.net/blog/tag/israel/
I like that Swiss Airports seems to consistently provide 1 hour of free wifi before making you pay.
Arrived in #Zurich for my connection to #TelAviv. I have a bit of a layover here - my flight isn't until 09:45 and it's presently 06:51. The flight from #Geneva to #Zurich was one of the best I've ever had. The flight attendant INSISTED that I move to the right side of the plane so that I could take my coffee and croissant with a gorgeous view of the Swiss Alps the entire way. The view of Mt. Blanc was stunning from the flight path to #Zurich, and we passed over #Montreaux and #Lucerne. I have to admit, that was a nice way to take coffee and croissant!
Off to Rehovot, Israel today for an ATLAS Higgs subgroup workshop (for the subgroup that I co-convene). I'll try to post photos, etc. as I can. It will be a busy few days. Back at #CERN next Friday.
I sent you an invite to your Stanford account. Let me know if you don't get it.
Yes, @ackey - I will be both your real friend and your fitbit friend. :-)
I have the last-generation fitbit, which used a special low-power wifi signal to communicate with a base station. The new generation use bluetooth, which ought to be more standard. But I know that fitbitd doesn't work with them as a result. So you'll have to dig around and see if someone has implemented a daemon to communicate via the bluetooth stack.
The physics experiment I work on uses sh*tpoint extensively to share data, results, presentations, etc. I've never understood shoving work from a fairly open community like particle physics into a silo like sh*tpoint. I feel for you.
Oh, so happy. I have been waiting for this for years.
Very angry at the #GRID today. Very angry, indeed.
Looking forward to the seminar by Luciano Maiani entitled "125 GeV Higgs: what is the message?" Good question . . . let's see how he wants it answered...
Oh, @tom . . . I wasn't worried. :-)
Congratulations, @ackey! I hope you got nice and drunk afterward. :-)
Sunday in France. Birds are chirping. The sky is cloudy. And I am doing work. HELLO, SOFTWARE UPDATE TO PHYSICS ACCEPTANCE CHALLENGE 5.0!!!!! #lame
