My talk at Django Toronto was scuttled by my computer refusing to recognize the HDMI (complained about a checksum failure when the HDMI was plugged in) and the further failure of the VirtualBox image to get onto the network so I could use another machine. We spent all of the prep time trying to get the VM online (eventually using a static configuration), seemingly having succeeded, as the laptop and VM were streaming video between them, but apparently that was only working because of the bridged adapter.
Annoying thing is that I come home, plug in the HDMI cable here on the secondary monitor and works perfectly. Sigh. Similarly the DHCP on the VM just picks up an IP and can stream to/from the other machines without a hiccup. Meh.
