Conference here i go
I'll be going to the Virus Bulletin 2005 in Dublin, departing from Seattle on Saturday.

The event actually starts on Wednesday, but i was requested to spend a few more days in the Ireland lab and conduct some anti-virus training with the lab team there.

Andrew, my back-up, is following me for his first visit to the conference. We have such a great level of disaster recovery consciousness that the two of us are taking separate flights, on separate airlines, with a transit in a different country, on different days!

There's also a musical pub crawl that the organizers have arranged for. Hooray... i'll get to meet up with Randy, the folks from F-Secure, Kaspersky virus analysts, Sorin, and the rest of the great group of guys and gals! I'm sure we'll be having as much fun as we had in 2004.

I am glad to be able to attend to this conference. I had a hard time getting the OK for this trip. I found out on Monday that I need a VISA for Ireland :) . After two phonecalls to their embassy, sending papers with DHL Express I got it on Thursday !!!
One point for Ireland !


Something else: ;)
Jonathan and Sharon: you have two wonderful children :)
Until now, I didn't even know that you have children.

Sorin,

Just read your latest post.. Amazing.

Heard from Jamz and Ivan from Trend that they had the same issue too!

Those aren't our children, but we love them as much as their parents. They're the babies of my niece. I'm a grand-uncle now !!
