ASPLive! and flying on 9/11

Tomorrow, I'm leaving for Orlando to speak at ASPLive on Internationalization.  I'll be flying exactly two years (to the minute) from September 11.  Needless to say, the wife's justifiably not happy about it and I have mixed feelings. 

My boss says that even flying on September 11th is safer than driving any day.  I'm not sure about that, but I'll definitely be expecting some extra security.  It's always a challenge to get my Insulin Pump through.

If you're in Orlando at VSLive, please do stop by my Friday afternoon session called "It's the WORLDWIDE Web."  I'll be showing some cool stuff in ASP.NET like a banking site in English, Chinese, Malay, Spanish and Arabic.  We'll talk all about System.Globalization and dig into the issues around Dates, Currency, Culture and Right to Left languages.  It's a very interesting topic.  I may try to greet the crowd in at least 10 languages. :)

Remember, when we talk about what happened on 9/11, most people in the world wonder what happened on November 9th...
