Anyone remember playing a computer game from the early 90's called Another World? I played it on my Amiga 500 back in the day. I was also waxing nostalgic a couple of months ago and was watching the run through of it on youtube here. Good times. But anyway, the premise of that really awesome platform adventure game is that a professor turns on a supercollider experiment and it all goes horribly wrong and he gets transported to an alien planet and has to find his way home. I couldn't help making the connection with all the media hoopla about the CERN LHC being switched on.

With the propensity for life to imitate art, I have some advice for the physics geek's at CERN. 1. Get fit, because you're going to do a lot of running away from alien monsters. 2. Take some clean underwear to work because its a long way home from Another World.


BTW, Fade to Black and Flashback, were even better (semi sequels) than Another World.


ps. I don't actually think anything bad will happen when the LHC is turned on. Why do people lose their heads when stuff like this goes down??


One noteworthy change: BizTalk Server 2006 R3 renamed to BizTalk Server 2009.

Thanks to everyone who came to my Tech Ed session. It was nice to see some old and new people.

As promised I've uploaded my slide deck for your reference. There are a few good links in there.

Also remember to do your evals because its important to me (and my manager :-) )

Heres the link on skydrive. (let me know if you have any issues accessing it)

For any of my readers attending Tech.Ed at the moment make sure you catch my session.

The session is called "Getting Your BizTalk Infrastructure Right" and I'm going to run though all the important bits and pieces you need to know to make your BizTalk servers run smoothly.

Friday 11:45 in room G07.

See you there!
