Hello again :)

Well I am in the US, and my what a boring place I have landed! Raleigh, North Carolina has to be the most boring place I have ever been. Well apart from a village in South Wales thatmy parents live (a pub and a church is all that is there!). Anyway, back to the issue at hand. I arived in the US last Tuesday, and seeing as I am too young to rent a car I had to get a taxi to my hotel. The time was about 9pm local time when I was here and there is this crappy key lock thing on my door that holds my keys. I was given a combination code to open this thing to get my keys out and get into my apartment. Lo and behold I was given the wrong code!!! I had no phone with me, the only phone was in my apartment. Smart thinking eh!? I knocked on a neighbours door and asked to borrow the phone and she kindly obliged me. I managed to get into my apartment after an hour which was nice.

Once I had calmed down about that fiasco I went to charge my Vaio up, and me in my infinite wisdom had left the thing in the office in the UK! So no net access from my apartment for the past few days! I finally received the cable yestersay (thanks Nikkie/Maryam).

I am here now in a tiny cubicle writing the Redbook that Lenz did last year. So far so good apart from S3 problems on the netfinitys. I managed to play on a machine with 2gig of memory yesterday which was cool. The system saw the mem perfectly (good old SuSE :-).

I also forgot my Psion too, so unfortunately no devel atm. Although my microwindows patch was merged into the main tree by Greg, so there is now support out of the box for Microwindows on the Psion.

Oh and did I mention my apartment is 5miles from the ITSO ? Yup, so I have to get a lift with a guy called Jay who is also working on the book (there is about 4/5 of us doing all the distributions in the series) so that is pretty cool. Although I need groceries as they say over here, so I will have to use my impeccible (did I spell that correctly ?) charm to get a lift there too :)

Well, I have raved on enough now, I'll let you get back to some real work.
