Remind me not to stand too close to YOU ... <G>

Seriously, tho ... if you think you may be chatting about possible
employment oppurtunities at the show, wear khakis and a pullover polo shirt.
What's the big deal? It's not like anyone is suggesting you wear a tuxedo if
you're going to be digging up pipes in the street or something even more

No one at a show really expects the audience to be wearing suits and ties,
right (unless you have to go back to the office later that day)? But you do
want to make at least a semi-professional impression, because you're looking
for a professional position. So, if you're going to be talking business
oppurtunites, dress in a business fashion (like business casual). If like
me, you're going to see what's available, and not schmooze for a job, jeans
and a t-shirt are fine.

Hell, even IBM, once the stuffiest of companies, is business casual every
day now.
