I was really looking forward to fly out last Saturday to Las Vegas for my first visit to Collaborate. But the Icelandic vulcano with the unpronounceable name (something like "Eiwjhfdjaajfkjjsirsuj"), threw soot in the food - which is a direct translation of a Dutch saying, the corresponding English saying would be something like: "spoil-sported it".
So both my presentations are canceled, sorry for those who had planned to attend!
The good thing is, I got a 100% refund of both flights and hotel from Expedia, with one single phone call of a few minutes on Sunday. A great service, that I didn't expect, so I was happily surprised by that!
So at least I got cashes for ashes, bucks for dust....
I really hope the air will be clean before the next big conference, ODTUG Kaleidoscope in Washington, and hope to see you all there!
