after about 12 hours of travelling i am back at home in ipswich. the journey was pretty easy really, i still can't sleep on planes so i'll just have to tough it out for the rest of the day to try and kill the jetlag. i just discovered that the us customs people have broken my suitcase even though i left it unlocked deliberately... cheers guys.

i'll write something more coherent about the 'sphere tomorrow when i have recovered a bit, in the meantimei will just say that it was a great week, i always come back wanting to try out the new things i have learnt, the challenge is always to pass that desire onto my colleagues who were not lucky enough to attend.
