University of Houston
I just got back from a day and a half at the University of Houston. I gave a colloquium yesterday on game programming classes and research. They took care of me very well, a driver met me at the airport and took me to the hotel, the hotel and meals were all paid for, and even the flight booking was taken care of for me. None of the usual paying for myself then waiting five weeks for a reimbursement. All I had to do is show up. Now that's how it should be done. My own department doesn't even have a budget for colloquium visitors.
