For one reason or another I've never really had the opportunity to use a laptop while actually in transit, so I thought I'd take the chance to post while I can.
I'm travelling back North from London on an East Coast train and I have a seat with a power socket (essential until I bother getting a replacement battery). We're not long past Darlington. The handwriting recognition is holding up fairly well although the way the train is shoogling about doesn't help.
I've just spent the week staying with scottymcleod and Jan, and attending Microsoft's UK TechDays to coincide with the release of Visual Studio 2010. The value of the talks varied from OK but uninspiring, to "Ooh, must download that and try it out!" In the latter category, I look forward to being able to have some automatic checking of architecture dependencies and exploring programming for the Windows Phone.
