Why I document my projects:

"Hi Bill, I just wanted to thank you for posting the info about your LED Tetris tie. It got me to pull out and dust off my Arduino that’s been sitting in a drawer for two years. I now have an LED tie of my own and wore it to church where it got rave reviews. I actually added two additional columns to my tie and I plan on adding a microphone and have it function as an audio visualizer. I’ve got some other electronics projects in mind for the future as well. Sorry if this seems like a rant, but I just wanted to say thanks again for getting me excited about electronics again! From, Caleb"

Facilities and rooms are nice. Most of the staff is pleasant. However, I had a bad experience with the cleaning staff. I hung "Do not disturb" on my door every day. The first day I came back to find the room cleaned, and the sign removed. I figured I must have forgot to leave the sign out. On the third day I came back and caught the cleaning staff in my room. I asked them how I was suppose to convey the fact I didn't want my room cleaned if they ignored the "Do Not Disturb" signs. She said i'd have to make the request at the front desk, and followed to say the only thing the sign means to her is she won't knock before entering if she sees the "Do Not Disturb" sign. I wish I was joking.
