I have Day 2 almost ready to go, so I'll post it on Saturday, and try to get to the CeBit photos on Monday. Sound good? Good. Here's an enticing quote:<br /><br />"The Journey getting to Germany was a long one – I’ve never traveled overseas before, so the eight hours on the plane was an interesting learning experience to say the least. Did I mention I can’t sleep on planes? Thank goodness they had two movies playing and I had two batteries in my laptop. I discovered a new personal gripe: software that requires Internet access to activate. I installed Quicken QuickTax onto my laptop with the idea of doing my wife’s taxes on the eight hour flight, but as soon as I tried to load it, the software asked for Internet access to activate. Incredible! At least Office XP gives you 50 loads before you have to activate – this program wouldn’t even give me one. Quicken, you suck..."

I spent a week in Russia a few years ago, and the 12 hour flight plus a thirteen hour get lag comming back (the hard one) because of daylight savings time wasn't something I'd like to have to do on a regular basis. But you get used to it I'm told..
