Confusion in Charlotte and an Apology

I was going to speak at Trinug on Monday, since I'll be in North Carolina already, speaking at the Corillian Technical Advisory board. Everything has moved along smoothly, topics were chosen and addresses exchanged.

Unfortunately, somewhere in the middle of an email thread ten-deep, the city changed. I'm flying into Charlotte, and Trinug meets in Raleigh. These two cities are 155 miles apart, and there's no way I could change my flights or get a rental car and still successfully speak my company's conference at 8amEST on Tuesday.

I'm just sick about this. Even though it's not an issue of fault - just a communication breakdown, these things happen - I feel like I'm letting Trinug and INETA down.

I'll be in Charlotte on Monday evening at Quiznos around 6pm if anyone wants to join me as I drown my sorrows in a vat of Diet Coke.

UPDATE: Maxim Karpov and the Charlotte Nerd Dinner crew have organized a dinner Monday and Quiznos is too small. The new details for Monday's dinner are:

Date: Monday March 06th, 2005
Time: 5:30pm – 9:30pm
Place:  Presto Bar and Grill
445 West Trade St.
Charlotte, NC 28202
704-334-7088

I work a few miles from that Quiznos and could probably get out by 6 Monday, it would be cool to meet you (and they have a pepper bar).

No sweat! Hopefully you will be able to visit us another time - I was really looking forward to hearing your talk and meeting you.
