Well, here I am, using an extortionate internet connection.
Except for registration and committee meetings I have no business at, the conference hasn't technically started yet, but already I've managed to buy a book, Word Order in Greek Tragic Dialogue, Helma Dik. There are modest discounts from some vendors, which simply adds to the temptations. I should avoid that room for the remainder of the conference.
I have run into two people I remember from the UT-Austin Classics department from, ah, a while ago. Et le sauvage noble!
