I'm leaving straight from the LACC on Thursday to head to the airport so I can get home. I'll be walking in my door sometime between 12:30a and 1a, and I have work on Friday as well.

This is going to be an exhausting week. That said, the above schedule is subject to change.

Not being heavy into dev work myself, I'm more intrigued to hear your insights of end user prospects such as the Windows 7 unveiling.

Still, I love your overviews and look forward to hearing your report as you progress through your schedule
