I feel like it's been a while since I've been to Melbourne (although I did pass through the airport there on my way back from Wagga). I don't know when I'll be there next, but I have felt tempted to try to get there this week.
Partly it's because my mum is about to turn sixty, but also because my friends Kimberly Tripp and Paul Randal are in Australia this week, and speaking at the Melbourne SQL Server User Group tomorrow night.
I won't be there, but if you're going to be in Melbourne, then make sure you register and get yourself there. It's bound to be quite packed, as these guys are the world experts in their areas — so be early and tell them hi from me!
