SXSW 2008: Connection issues…

March 13th, 2008 Posted in Music, sxsw 2008

We are staying at an Embassy Suites and the internet connection is dog slow.  Uploading the photos was a chore of unbelievable torture.  Even after having the Flickr uploader resize to 1600px the 27 remaining photos took almost an hour.  I finally found a way to keep a stable connection up for the duration so we have pics but I am pretty upset.  I can only imagine how pissed I would be if I was officially reporting from SXSW.  Oh well, we will keep hacking at it for the next few days…

    Someone needs to get a wireless card for their laptop ;-)

    I assume you mean a Verizon or Sprint network card, since my MacBook Pro has built in wireless. The network is a lot better now… it actually works like you would expect it to in a hotel. Uploading the first set of today’s pics went a LOT faster. Maybe because most people are gone right now…
