I've been on the road for the last three and a half weeks. I'm beginning to notice some symptoms of "too long on the road" such as:
* When going to breakfast in the hotel I often quote a room number on a floor that they don't have
* I'm getting used to the fact that many hotels in the UK have never heard of broadband
* Dial up sucks
* Most people who email me assume I have fast network access
* The first thing I do when arriving @ a new venue is to locate the nearest StarBucks
* The mere suggestion of an English cooked breakfast is enough to make me find the nearest healthy alternative
The good news is that I'm actually going to the office later on this week. In addition I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting many IT Professionals and consumers whilst on the road @ GetSafeOnline, ITForum, The Oracle User Group and the Visual Studio/SQL/BizTalk launches.
It's certainly good to spend plenty of time out in the field as it keeps me grounded in the "real world".
I've presented at the following locations since my last visit to the office:
Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Lewisham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Harrogate, London, Barcelona
