As a consultant you find yourself all over the place. Today I am headed to downtown Chicago via the good ole train. It's roughly a 1:30 minute ride one way. I normally travel with at least the following:
- Large cup of Dunkin Donuts ( you know America runs on it )
- 1 Verizon phone with EVDO
- 1 Vista machine, 2 batteries
- 1 set of headphones
Here is where things get very geeky:
I am currently using the phone as a modem. Blogging, email, IM, banging code all while listening to URGE ( BTW URGE just rocks ). All at 50 mph! If that wasn't enough, the code I am working on is hosted on a remote TFS server I am currently checking things in and out of. CRAZY, I just love it!!
So what does my current bandwidth look like?

It's pretty crazy how connected we really are today.
