Plane ticket to So Cal (flying into Long Beach, not Ontario International Airport, which is right next to the test administration center): $300
Three nights at some weird hotel near the convention center I've never heard of: $192
Rental car to get from Long Beach to Ontario and back: $90
USB Floppy drive (because the Bar doesn't accept CD-ROMs): $23
Extra battery for laptop: $112
Will the money-sucking madness ever end?
FYI: I will be in the Ontario/Claremont area July 25-28. If any CMC folks are still in the area we should have dinner.
P.S. What's the best way to get to Dulles for a 6AM flight?
