This one time at code camp (Jacksonville), my laptop screen went out before my presentation. I ran into this cool guy named Mike who worked for a large insurance company and told him that I was nervous to drive my presentation from the wall and not my laptop screen so I would not be able to face the audience. Plus my presentation was mostly code, so it was going to be very hard to drive the screen from the wall and present at the same time.
Then I thought, hey do you have a crossover cable? He said yea, actually I do. Then I asked if I could borrow his laptop and set up a network connection and then remote desktop to my laptop which had all of the code on it. I asked Dave to see if they had a monitor that had mulitple video out and he want to look for one.
Meanwhile, Mike and I go up to an empty room and figure out the way to remote desktop into my laptop and then I drive the session through his laptop. We get it to work about 15 minutes before my session.
Thanks Mike for your help and being there at the right time. Funny how things work sometimes.
Anyway, I had a fun time in Jacksonville and am looking forward to going to Tallahassee Code camp on Sept 24th. I hope to see you all there.
