Alas, my trip to L.A. for Microsoft PDC has been foiled by illness.  In my place, will be Jon “Pilgrim”; our director of technical support.  Thanks to the PDC crew for allowing us to make this last minute second change.

The irony of the situation is that the only person I had contact with the day I got ill was my barber….and why was I getting my hair cut?  So that it looked decent for the show.

  1. Too bad, James. Apparently all the attendants got a free multi-touch laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed!

  2. I heard about that! I also got a call from my co-workers at 3am letting me know that I was missing out on the fun they were having.

    I’m betting they didn’t wake up as refreshed as I felt this morning though :p

  3. Yeah, you should have called back at 7 AM – when the hangover would have been at its peak 🙂
