*whoops* It happened again....
Well I should get a good nights sleep tonight because Air NZ, bless their souls, have decided to let me sit in 2K on my AKL-SFO leg...So I can only conclude that Rod and I are not really getting 'First Class' but rather sitting as Business passengers in first class seats.
Still... I'm not complaining.... closest thing I'll get to the Lie Flat Businessman for a good wee while yet

I'm Addicted To Outlook Mobile
OK... so Outlook mobile truely does run my entire life for me....
You see if something needs to be done, unless it is in there it will not get done....
eg.g From today.
Wifey, who is working in Wellington as an advisor to the minister of ACC, sent me a meeting request titled “Shut cat flap so cat can't get out”... I can just accept it and now I'll have no worries getting the kitty to the kitty summer resort tommorow.

MSDN Regional Director.....
OK..... the flair post from last night was really harping back to some stuff that Rory was going on about earlier in the year.
I posted the new flair (logo) to the left last night to see if anyone noticed... which they didn't... but now I can announce good and proper.
Someone, well Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom (or generosity) has decided to let me wear a Regional Director hat for a period. Which is all really rather cool.
It's quite an intimidating group to be associated with though Lots of names of people whose books I've read and looked up to when I was a little whipper snapper developer......
Anyway... it's all rather exciting. Will hopefuly give me more opportunities to work with the community and evangelise technology as I an want to do.

Rod has some stuff on NZ's First Class experience.
I'm inclined to agree that it's not super but I reckon the seats are actually that bad... Much better than NZ business.
The NZ inflight entertainment experience is LAME LAME LAME. When I fly to Seattle this week it will be the Fourth time I have seen the same bloody movies in NZ in the past few months.
Roll on the new business class... it looks IMHO to be about the best business offering around (bar maybe Lufthansa but only cos I want in flight internet.... which they have even in coach).
FWIW. Like Rod we have a back of the plane company policy..... but the odd upgrade is nice
Rod also comments on the lounge experiences...
IMHO the Air NZ lounges (Intl ones excepted) are pretty bloody good. Every other Star Alliance lounge I've been in recently has been pretty ass.... I mean in Singapore they even give you tyhe second class treatment by bouncing Gold Star Alliance to the 'Premiere Lounge'... Premiere my ass. I reckon Air NZs lounges and Koru Club in general spank the pants of most others...
