i have booked myself up for lotusphere '04. this will be my fourth 'sphere (i also went in '99, '00, and '03) but my first where i am actually staying at the dolphin which is the hotel the conference is based in. it means i'll be able to partake in a few more beers than usual and not have to lug quite so much around all day.

as usual turtle's site is the best place to go for information and chat (although it has started a little late this year). so i'll be doing two trips to florida within 3 weeks in january... life is very tough sometimes.
