9:33am on Wednesday, 15th April, 2009:



I'm away from tomorrow until Tuesday, attending the Independent MMO Game Developers Conference in Las Vegas. I'll blog but may not be able to upload it, and expect the usual array of typos that come from my using a smaller keyboard (especially as my new netbook has an even smaller one).

The short form of Las Vegas is, apparently, "Vegas", whereas for Los Angeles it's "LA". I can see why people may not want to call Los Angeles "Angeles", because that has an extra syllable over "LA" (although still quite a lot fewer than "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula"). Why not abbreviate Las Vegas to "LV", though?

Maybe it's to avoid confusing Romans, for whom that would mean 55.
