Day Light Savings Confuse You?
Thank the Lord you don't live in the USA...
Daylight Saving Time begins for most of the United States at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October.
Daylight Saving Time, for the U.S. and its territories, is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Eastern Time Zone portion of the State of Indiana, and the state of Arizona (not the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe). Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, due to its large size and location in three states.
GAH! So if you're an indian you're on DST but if you're not you're not.... DOH!

Go Hard or Go Home
OK. So the week started out pretty well for me with my first sub 104kg weigh in. But then it kinda didn't really spark. I didn't do a heap or exercise (Gym Mon, Canoe Polo Tue, Run Wed, Run Fri) and so come this weekend I needed a jump start!
I got up this morning, went to the farmers market, had an apple strudel and some yummy russian deep fried pastie for breakfast...... and then ran/walked up Mt Cargil 5 minutes faster than ever before.... that's like 10% off my best time!
Just to prove it, here is my chart....

Star Aliance Gold Flying Air NZ and United.... read this....
United, bless their souls, have a set of 'Premium' Economy seats in the front of coach. These are not paid for extras but are instead dished out on a first come first served basis.
If you are flying through to a US destination on NZ/UA combined you should ring 0800 747 400 (press 1 then 1) and they will generally be nice and stick you in this section of the plane

Dear Air New Bloody Zealand
I'm currently sitting in the Maple Leaf (Air Canada) Lounge @ LAX. It is a tiny, overcrowded hovel with nasty processed cheese at the food bar.
But, it has Internet, whereas your swanky pants brand new luxurious and spacious lounge next door, does not.
Do you have rocks in your head or something?
You upgrade the 747 fleet and don't put internet in them..... OK... you could arguably make that decision on reasonable grounds...>. But to get to the new lounge and find no internet! Come on!
[UPDATE] They have hard wired internet here..... so bring your travel WiFi router (I left mine @ Home this time)......

Holy Shitballs...... WWF Designer Hosted In IE
THey have just shown the WWF designer pulled up into IE to dynamically edit the Indigo workflow they've just built...... and you can also edit currently running workflows.
This is just SOOOOO cool....
Imagine how good this could be for mobile routing solutions.... you can login 1/2 way through the transaction and reconfigure a running workflow to handle and exception case.
This is probably the coolest WWF demo that I've seen so far.
THey showed a workflow hanging on a delay activity and they dropped in some new activities after it stright from the web browser.

Workflow and Indigo
Sitting in a Don Box session at the moment looking at some future stuff for how WWF and WCF will talk together.
Very cool concepts- theability to simply have a workflow be an Indigo service but they really tightly integrated the two.... which is great.
For example if you have a correlated receive and send pair or activities in your workflow when exported as an Indigo service they will be matched up as a Send/Receive pair..... This also means that we can model contracts more richly than just single pairs- we can model contracts as conversations- i.e. we know the order in which our workflow expects to recieve messages.
Looks great. One thing that I'm interested in is just how much hosting support they're going to give us for Indigo Workflows. I'm pretty sure that IIS is going to be an out of the box supported hosting mechanism (hosting session is next).... will be interesting to see what sort of higher end support services we get OOB... things like persistence services and so forth to enable long running work flows.
