I'm back in the UK now, after what seemed like a very long journey home. I was so very thankful for the waiting car at Heathrow (it works out cheaper for MessageLabs to provide a car than pay for parking) and napped a bit on the road home.
The flight seemed very cramped on the way back. I think despite all the worry about DVT, these new planes have even less legroom than before.
On the plus side, the plane was equipped with on-demand personal entertainment. Thats right - no more waiting for the movie to start/end, plus you can pause it and rewind/ffwd. That's pretty cool, and it made me wonder how they make that work for 400 passengers. Do they have one big 8-way Xeon for everyone or do they have a shared disk and CPUs in every chair? I thought it was quite interesting to think about anyway, and the image quality was very good.
The last couple of days we had free we spent between OMSI, shopping, and chilling. I splurged and bought an AirPort Express. I'm just playing with it now trying to get it to do all the things I want it to do.
Back to work tomorrow. I promise I will blog about the last few days of OSCon this week.
