I went home and ordered a hammock, just in case I need to hitchhike on a boat somewhere. Yates got me amped.

Hung out with Simon and a barefooted Gary Neptune at the Sun for a couple hours after the presentation. Simon is an interesting fella, he likes scotch.


Thanks for calling me out, Dave. I deserve it. Oh, and thanks for using my full, real name. I'd forgotten that, too.

So that's Gary Neptune! Thanks for pointing that out. I never met him before, but I did notice the bare feet and sweater - hillarious! Nice guy, and so is Simon. That was a fun talk.

Ha, yeah I noticed the first time he said that he pronounced it glay-sure and then as his presentation went on he transition more to the proper British glah-see-er pronunciation.
