BTW I’m on my way to the airport – presenting at Adelaide CommunIT on Monday – me ‘n my ol’ mate Senator Helen Coonan. heh. And no, don’t bother coming around to turn over my house. I’m taking the only thing of value (the laptop) with me. I’ll try and blog again early next week. Happy travels on the ‘net, my darlings.
