Looking for accommodation tips at Ottawa, Canada

Hi all!

I'm right now looking for accommodations in Ottawa, Canada. I'm going to do a presentation about Npgsql at PGCon2008 and as I never went to Ottawa I don't know of any good place to stay. If you have any tips about cheap hotels, hostels or anything , please, let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Update: I'd really really thank you all of those who gave me tips about places in Ottawa. I already did my reservation and hope to see you there at PGCon2008!!

Back from FISL 9.0!

Hi all!

FISL 9.0 was very, very nice!! I enjoyed very much to be able to talk to so many people about FLOSS!

I had the great pleasure to meet Josh Berkus and David Fetter! I took a picture with Josh I will post here later. Josh is a very nice person! I enjoyed very much to be able to talk to him. Unfortunately I talked almost nothing with David Fetter. I hope when I'm at PGCon I can talk to him a little bit more :)

I also met for the first time Everaldo Canuto on this presentation about Mono. It was very funny. Suddenly on his presentation, Everaldo stops and asks: "Is Francisco here?" After I put my hand up, he asks again: "Are you the Francisco I'm thinking you are?" and everybody started to laugh... :)
Anyway, Everaldo is a very funny person. He has a very particular way of doing presentations...

I also found my old friend Alessandro Binhara! I didn't know he would be there! It was a very nice surprise. We talked a little bit but unfortunately he said he wouldn't be able to stay much time there. :( I hope we can talk more later on another opportunity.

That's all for while. I will post some pictures I took at FISL later when I transfer them to my computer.

Stay tuned.
