Another One Will Bite the Dust

It was no wonder of wonders that as part of the conference schwag I was given a laptop bag. Not another laptop bag! Can organizers be so lacking in imagination that all they can think of is giving out another laptop case? Surely, they have enough of their own gathering dust on a shelf.

Well, at least you got a bag. For the last conference that I attended with a 800$ registration tag, I got a ball pen. Pathetic. Some conferences even in India were much better.
Another peeve is the "lunch" that some of these guys offer. The last time they had some repulsive turkey sandwich and a cookie. How cheap. I don't get it...these conference people, even after we (read "advisor") pay 1000$ in registration fees, largely act like they are doing us a favour.
