1. I'm about to get on a plane for London, that will be nice. It will be Diwali (nov 9) when I land, is what I hear.

2. As hostess gifts, I'm carrying two snack-sized bags of Tim's Cascade Chips/crisps, and an US magazine (gossip mag with britney spears on cover). As representative of my fine country, this is a little sad, but in a global economy, what can you do.

See you in Barcelona in a few days, if you'll be at TechEd IT Forum. I'm sorry I haven't answered your question, or repsonded to your e-mail. I've been busy, but I know that is still rude to not respond.

Your friend,


This just in: Tim's chips are really good.
