The BALD was excellent, catching up with los of people that I only see once a year and also put some new faces to blogs. The gathering finished slightly early this year as a lot of people seemed to be heading off for the Penumbra dinner so I headed back to my room to drop off newly acquired OpenNTF and Taking Notes schwag, unfortunately I sat down and thought a nap would be good and the next thing I knew it was midnight! So I missed the Turtle's ESPN do but did at least get a good night's sleep. That should leave me in good stead for the various parties tonight and the first proper day of sessions today.

Update: Bruce has posted some photos put to a very funky tune!
