If a health and safety person was to visit the room I'm in @ the moment they'd probably have a cornary! I'm preparing for my talks @ the Dutch launch event and am joined by the other speakers. The room is small. We have MUCH kit! Wires everywhere. I brought my own 6 way power block - trouble is I'm using most of it. The other guys/ladies have loads of kit too.
The airport security folk had a field day yesterday @ Heathrow when they scanned my hand baggage - they spent 10 minutes unpacking everything and were rather surprised that I had 3 external hard disks in there together all kinds of wires and associated tech stuff.
