Sleep. I'm still exhausted. And I can't sleep late tomorrow, as I have a Conference follow-up meeting at 8:30. I haven't been to work in two days. I spent 3 hours yesterday trying to get the Conference's Internet Cafe to work (the setup instructions left a lot to be desired) and finally succeeded. I also spent a lot of time discussing the fact that my library is going to have to take the (SQL-based) servers since the place that has time has announced that it's pulling out of the local 23-member consortium. I presented a program on library history, arranged for Nancy Pearl to autograph a bunch of action figurines (one each old and new), coordinated with the hotel on banquet counts and so one, made sure that speakers got paid, and lent a rifle to the Intellectual Freedom group ("Censor this, sucker!").

The double set of Nancy Pearl action figurines raised USD 90.00 each, and they sold 7 of them at that price. (These were my personal gift to the IF auction.)
