Back in the saddle

6:07am 4th February 2007

OK so it's the first day of the TeleChoice conference. By the way, I'm back from overseas. I'm up north in Port Douglas, QLD for the TeleChoice national conference. But first, I shall tell you about my first salvage on a dive. On the second last day in Thailand I went for a dive at Koh Rin. 45 minutes into the second dive, I found a dive mask on the coral bed. Yes, my very first salvage was a dive mask. Under international maritime law, anything found at sea is the property of the finder. So, with the backing of under international law and a cry of "finders keepers", I am now the proud owner of a second, cheap, bright blue dive mask.

A day after that, I left Thailand for home on a JetStar flight. Please, people, whatever you do, do not fly JetStar for international flights or even long domestic ones. The seats were vinyl bus style seats and the other passengers were smelly hippies who talked loudly about how fantastic it is that you can buy Xanax and Valium over the counter in Thailand.

Anyway, I'm back home now. Well not really, I'm in Port Douglas, and I will be here until Thursday. We just arrived and I've unpacked and now like the true geek that I am I've come online to check my mail send a few of my own and write this blog entry. It's 5pm here, we have free time until 7:30pm when there's a dinner or something somewhere. I'm not sure what I'm going to do until then, but I'll probably just wander around the lush grounds and enjoy the scenery. I don't have my camera with me, but it will arrive tomorrow night hopefully. So, nice to be home people, and I hope to see you all soon!
