Since I have a floor map of the convention centre does anybody know what
the booth's id number is supposed to be?

Any idea on numbers to expect?

I'm not sure what my hours are going to be but I'll be spending more time
at the booth then I will anywhere else at the conference. I'll be in town
as of Tuesday night for the whole week.

The one event that I do know already that I want time out for is the book
author's signing on Wednesday evening; I'm going as a Dru Lavigne groupie
:-), http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/bsdhks/chapter/index.html

This helps a lot.

What about the other things about the booth i.e. table, power cords,
lighting etc. I know it's being handled but not by whom. How far along is
it?

What else do you need Josh?
