Meanwhile, I've touched down in Seattle for TechReady, an internal technical conference with a pre-conference that started this morning.
I had a three-hop flight, so I decided to have a swift pint in Atlanta to steel myself for the final hop. The nice man at the airport pub carded me. I got up and shook his hand, and told him it was the nicest compliment I've been given in ages. Would you believe it - someone out there thinks I might be a tender 21.
