Thank you for posting this. Sometimes Australia seems so far away... I hate missing all these great conferences.

I really wish I could have caught up with everyone again. But I got lost in the mass of people. I did enjoy our little get together. I wish we had more time to talk.

Thanks for taking the time to provide such detailed accounts. I could not attend because I'm busy with the launch of my pirate book - but hope to meet you all in London next year!
