Don't have much time to read through all the squillions of posts right now, but just wanted to let you know that I'm still here and will be posting as soon as life returns to some sense of normality.

Cheers, Dave.
Now I don't know Dave......I'm seriously suspicious of MS now. Somehow they engineered a massive volcanic eruption after 200 years of near-dormacy just so you would be stuck on planes (scratch) trains and automobiles trying to get out of Europe and therefore unable to post on ABI re: the hack!!!! LOL

Ya, leaving this Friday afternoon - flying straight to Sydney, there for a couple days, on to Brissie, there for a couple of days and spending the weekend in Adelaide with mum and dad before flying back to the US on Monday.

Looking forward to it - a nice mix of business & pleasure.

Cheers, Dave.

Hi All,

Just had a message from DaveMac to say he'll be in the Bar at the Hilton Islington in London at 6pm today (Sunday 16th May), if anybody wants to meet him for a drink...

Simon

Well, I got back to Seattle tonight after being away 20 days (3 longer than planned). Exhausted, but looking forward to getting into the office tomorrow morning.

As I tweeted, I traveled Seattle - Los Angeles - Sydney - Brisbane - Gold Coast - Brisbane - Los Angeles - San Francisco - Frankfurt - Munich - Dublin - London - San Francisco - Seattle. Phew!

Anyhow, sorry if I've been a little distant as a result of all the travel. Will be more responsive now I'm back, hopefully.

Cheers, Dave.

I'll confess I missed you Dave. It's extra nice when you bring new games back with you. I can see you begging the Zune team: "Hey, hold off on releasing the card games until I get back from my trip!"

Actually, its quite the opposite - I'm all for not being the holdup in the chain...

We have an approvals process and a certification process that is all electronic, and so I can be anywhere in the world and approve a batch of apps to be posted to the Marketplace. That's the way it should be - can't have you lot waiting on me to be in my office in Redmond before stuff hits the wire...

Cheers, Dave.

Perish the thought! There would be rioting in the streets - I have found Zune owners to be a very...enthusiastic bunch to say the least!
