I am in Portland this week for OSCON. I've got a couple of talks to do this week (and a MySQL 5.1 Tutorial to do today).
I am a bit cavalier about short trips, I don't double check my packing as much as I should. Therefor I neglected to pack my Treo's charger. Last night I was thinking that I would need to get up this morning and go buy a charger and then I remembered an article I read on LifeHacker.com about hotels having boxes of power supplies just sitting around collecting dust.
This morning I went down to the front desk of the Double Tree and asked if they had a box of chargers. Down to the basement they sent me where I found not one box, but a few boxes of power supplies.
