ok, so what seemed like a good idea last night was, looking back on it from the cold light of day, not so sensible. the big plan was to have as big a night as possible so that i would be tired and therefore sleep on the plane tonight. i am, indeed, tired, but also feel like i have been kicked repeatedly in the head.

this will not be mentioned again!

the universal party was good fun if a little cold. it got down to freezing here last night which should just not be allowed. i also managed to forget my camera so others will have to provide photographic evidence.

yesterday had a good few sessions, ed's was useful as always. the web service features in nd7.0 look superb and will really make my life easier. i have written our own set of wrapper classes for web services but they are quite complicated and because of the jdk we are running, a bit limited in functionality.

the plan for today is to do the first session, then duck out and check out of the hotel. this afternoon are the general harass the developers and closing sessions which i think i should have time to do. then it will have to be a very quick run over to the airport to experience the joys of the multiple security checks. matt sent me a mail earlier saying that there is snow in ipswich, hopefully it will not make the drive home from gatwick too bad.
