All Quiet On The Western Front

... largely because I'm not there. I'm in Texas - Austin, to be exact - grabbing some PC time in the hotel prior to a set of customer meetings.

Spring looks like it has already arrived here. It's in the 70s and clear, and so in other words an order of magnitude better than, say, Chicago, where one of our party was try to leave from to get here by last night. They ended up on a train instead of a plane, heading to Saint Louis from where they did manage to get as far as Dallas at least. This latest storm has literally frozen solid much of the mid-west.

In the background, I have MSNBC running on the TV. They were just reporting from Minnesota and apologising for not shooting the interview from a prettier place. It seems their camera lens has frozen solid and they can't now zoom it in or out ....
