Great trip to Seattle to the PSOUG Oracle day 2006

My very short trip to Seattle has been very interesting. I have met many very friendly and nice people here. The PSOUG Oracle day went very well, my presentation seemed well received and judging my the gasps by some people they will have rushed back to work to start to secure their databases..:-)

Thanks very much to Jeremiah Wilton and Grant McAlister for taking me out in the evening after the conference for a nice meal at Jaks Grill. It was a very enjoyable evening for me.

Also thanks to James Petts for looking after me on Saturday morning before my flight left for the UK again. He took me for a tour of Seattle, we went up the sky tower ( - (broken link) It is item 15 on this page) and also for a nice lunch in the downtown market, we went into a fish and chip restaurant, that was excellent and finally we paid a visit to Fry's where I was amazed at the size of the place and the good on offer. I made a few purchases of maily USB items that were much cheaper than in the UK. I also got a Linksys wireless router for a great price of $47.

I will talk about some of the presentations later, I made some notes.
