I'll be hanging out with the cool kids at the Northwest C++ Users Group tomorrow night. If you're in the area, and want to heckle me, swing by. We'll be in building 40 at 6:30 PM. My talk starts at 7:00 PM. I'm talking about the actual runtime cost of exception handling for x64 and x86 on Windows.
Check out http://www.nwcpp.org/Meetings/2006/10.html for the slides, and a video of the talk, if you're interested. You can see my thinning hair in back, my marvelous posture, and my always entertaining speaking style.
