I am glad I decided to attend Software Architect 2008 the day before my session. Why? Simple - there is no Internet access in the room and I planned to show a number of demos which require access. These included Woodgrove Bank Silverlight demonstrator, the NHS CUI Silverlight demonstrator and SQL Server Data Services.

The solution - BT Openzone access from my hotel room + Camtasia to capture videos of the demos which I can now show on Wednesday. Camtasia was a star - I rarely use it, yet with ease (and limited time) I was able to create just what I needed.
