Back to the UK

I leave tomorrow for the UK again, this time heading to Liverpool for SQL Bits 9, where I speak on Friday. I jammed this trip down as much as I could and tried a couple new things. Hopefully they'll work.

First, I booked a flight through Calgary tomorrow. That allows me to leave at 3pm, and the flight to the UK starts at 8pm my time, not 8pm EST. Hopefully I'll sleep better on the way over.

The other thing I did was get up at 5:30 today, and 5:00 tomorrow. I'm thinking that if I go a couple hours off schedule, I'll be better adjusted in the UK.

Lastly, it's a quick trip. Arrive in UK Thur morning and leave Sunday morning. I thought I might have to race to London and then to Liverpool, but my London stuff was canceled, so I'll go to Cambridge for a couple hours and then bus to Liverpool with the rest of the Red Gate crew.

Fingers crossed again that I get only 4 planes on this trip, but we'll see. Going minimalist, knocking off as much stuff as I can and not checking a bag.
