Welcome to Texas Alan Bell! Alan posted a notice on his blog that he’d be visiting Dallas this week, so I invited him to come try out the national pasttime…a little baseball game featuring the Rangers and Yankees. Now I’m not in the habit of picking up random UK guys and taking them to baseball games, but hey, everybody who blogs in the Notes community is a friend, right? Hmm, on second thought, I take that back. Sara Radicatti definitely does NOT qualify for friend status in my book.

Anyway, I’m sure I bored Alan to tears with the “fundamentals of the game”, and the 7th inning stretch, but at least he didn’t melt into the pavement, while the Rangers positively did pound New York into it. I hope things go well the remainder of the week Alan, and look forward to seeing you at the Sphere in 2005!

I attended my first technology class as a student, the Websphere Studio Device Developer Workshop, in about 10 years last week. Boy, was that fun. Many thanks to Kevin Gilhooly, the primary instructor for the class. If you are interested in developing for “devices” with Java, this workshop was definitely worthwhile.
