It's currently 8:30pm.  My flight was supposed to take off at 6:05pm.  It's now scheduled to take off at 9:30pm.

I'm sitting in the Air Canada lounge in Toronto on my way to Seattle and I'm bored.  They've got a free wireless network in here so I'm hooked in nice and fast and I thought I'd revive my blog.  I've never really stopped thinking about it but the move from gotdotnet.com slowed me down.  And, I've finally registered darkcanuck.ca but still haven't gotten around to getting a static IP at home.  Eventually this blog will move there when I get off my ass...

I'm on my way from Ottawa, where I live, to Seattle, where I work.  I started working for Microsoft as a developer in June 1998.  I lived in Seattle for a couple of years, but my girlfriend Kristi was in law school in Toronto so I commuted back there a lot.  Finally, in March 2001 I decided to move back to Toronto.  I was lucky enough to have a great set of people that I worked with who were willing to try letting me work remotely.  I've been working from Toronto (and then Ottawa) ever since then (so I guess it worked out).  I fly to Seattle for about one week every month to spend some face time with the rest of the team, but apart from that I just talk to them on the phone and via IM and email.

As a result of that, I spend a lot of time on planes, specifically Air Canada planes.  Right about now, I should be going to stand in line to try to get on this delayed flight.  I'll probably post again in half an hour when they delay the flight again...
