Three days of work turned into an entire week. I hardly slept between Sunday and Friday and was utterly exhausted for the weekend. There's something about this particular customer I find is particularly disruptive to the rest of my life.

Currently compensating for this with a break. Visiting Bryce and Red Hat and doing some product evaluation stuff for work. Getting into the US is a good deal harder than it was last time I was here. Security at the airports involves National Guard with guns and three security checks before getting on the plane.

Apart from harrassing (and being harrassed) by various Red Hat folks and writing a long report on possible technologies Bryce and I visited the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell. It's pretty stunning scenery. Weather here is stupdily warm for early December. Pictures to come, when I finally get around to sorting them out. Put the new digital camera through it's paces and learnt a lot about how it works, at the expense of a LOT of badly taken pictures!
