Well, after the usual two-hour delay getting out of Newark I'm finally ensconced in my 1-star hotel and preparing for another Storage Networking World.

It was funny a few years ago watching a speaker try to explain why they had to rename SASI to SCSI without mentioning that the first S used to stand for Shugart and vendor names aren't allowed in international standard names.
