The 24 hours I’m currently writing this post in are all about firsts. First I’ve just got back from my first ever live gig, and first ever experience of Metallica live! I’ve been to the Sheffield Arena for the latest leg of Metallica’s Death Magnetic tour, it was f***ing AWESOME!!!! Can’t wait to do it again! Note to self – why has it taken 28 years for this to happen???? WTF!!
Secondly I’m currently sitting in the departure lounge at Newcastle Airport waiting for my flight to Amsterdam and then onto Seattle for my first MVP Summit! Looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones in what looks to be a packed week ahead!!

I’m pleased to announce that we have rearranged Eric Nelson’s session on Parallel Programming in .Net (VS2010), which was unfortunately cancelled due to the poor weather, and the event will now be held on TUESDAY 24th FEBRUARY at the same venue. Please register for the event, even if you had register for the previous date, at http://www.vbug.co.uk/Events/February-2009/VBUG-NEWCASTLE-REARRANGED–Parallel-programming-in-NET-VS2010-with-Eric-Nels.aspx I look forward to seeing you there!
Unfortunately due to the adverse weather conditions we are experiencing across the UK at the moment, we have had to cancel tomorrow night's event. Unfortunately Eric is not able to make the trip up at this time due to being grounded at the Airport tonight. We hope to rearrange the event as soon as possible.
