It's almost upon us…

Wow, I can't believe #AU2009 is almost upon us and I'll be back in the US in 13 days time…

WoW its almost time to go home...

Wow doesn't time fly when you're having fun... since landing in Orlando almost 4 weeks ago, we've had a magical experience with Disney Cruise Lines and the Disney Magic / Caribbean Cruise. If you ever get the chance, you simply must experience the magic of a Disney cruise... it was simply fantastic :)

Since then, we've been based in Cumming, Georgia and venturing to far away places like Chickamauga & Chattanooga, Atlanta and environs to name a few... I'll post some images once I've organized them a tad more...

Not long to go...

I can't believe AU2009 is almost upon us... only 25 days to go!!!

Apart from the many exciting classes on offer, there is also the 2nd annual Autodesk Bloggers Social on Monday night, 30 November.

Earlier on Monday, is AUGI's Leadership Conference & Local Chapters President's meeting

There will also be a Twitter Tweetup event on the exhibit hall floor Tuesday night @ 7pm in the AUGI area. Fellow tweeters, if you help spread the word and follow Shaan @mrcadman, donate to the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation we may get Shaan to shave his head at AU for the good cause!
