Hopefully the DirectX forums won't collapse while I'm gone, but I'll leave it in the capable hands of the other moderators to dish out cruel and evil punishments to anyone who misbehaves [evil]
The primary reason for going home is for the UK & IE MVP day in Cambridge on Tuesday - but I've also decided I need a holiday. I don't really have time for one, but I'm really losing any interest in my projects, so I'm hoping that taking a week off will allow me to recharge the batteries and actually rebuild some interest! I can't actually think of a single day (including weekends) that I haven't been working in 2006 [oh]
So, this Cambridge thing...
I get to visit Microsoft's research campus and a whole load of talks and round-tables from MS-UK and MSR:
Gonna be a fairly busy day!
The networking/socialising at these events has been really interesting in the past - get to chat to plenty of people from other areas of the technology industry (attendance of 200 MVP's + MS people). Although it usually seems to revolve around propping up the nearest bar until they throw us out [wink]. Should also get to meet up with Simon "S1CA" O'Connor and Richard "superpig" Fine as well!
Right, I best go and pack my stuff!
