The Cocoa Beach Hilton's food quality was generally
better in this regard, no less convenient, but still not great. IMHO,
the tradeoff is regrettable, but acceptable.

H-mmm. Perhaps a roach coach lunch wagon at Cocoa, Mike and Jeff?
(you guys have nothing better to do over the noon hour anyhow :-) !)



In fact, during Prototype Rails, I usually have my lunch catered:
my wife goes across the street to Sonny's BBQ and brings me back a
sandwich. I find that it is tasty, inexpsensive, and best of all: FAST.
