I've been away with the Microsoft Dive Club for 10 days and boy do I have some catching up to do. We were diving off the coast of Tanzania and although we could get a phone signal, there was no data service which meant 10 days out of e-mail contact. The only work related news we heard was the departure of Brian Valentine.
I've got my unread messages down to 266. I also found that when I dialed in to set my voice mail message I said "I'll be away until Wednesday 13th July" instead of "September" - which created some confusion ....
