in reply to When travelling, what level of existential comfort do you require?

From experience, I require...

  • Thick (soundproof) walls.
  • No roaches.
  • A lock on the door.
  • A shower (not just a tub).

Is that asking too much? Apparently, it is for some places.

    Soundproof walls is the holy grail of hotels. If I could find a chain that uses insulated, concrete block walls between rooms, I'd never stay anywhere else.
      I stayed in the NYLO Dallas Las Colinas one time. It has cement block everything (walls, floors, ceilings). Definitely sound proof! I'm pretty sure I could have played tuba in there an no one would have been bothered (had I had it with me).

[Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
[ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
[ambrus]: you can even print them.
[Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
