Back in transit...

I'm holed up in the Renaissance London Heathrow on my way out to Canada, with an early morning check-in tomorrow, as I've decided to take a weeks holiday in the run up to the IVOA interoperability meeting out in B.C. the week after...

Update: Transferring to a Vancouver bound flight in Chicago O'Hare. I've got bumped to first class for this leg, not that this means a lot on a "domestic" leg. But you can't complain...

Update: Got seriously delayed at O'Hare, and we came within a few minutes of the flight crew on my Vancouver leg going illegal. I think we pushed back three minutes ahead of the time when they'd have had to find a new crew, or cancel the flight. From overhearing the chatter with the agent at the gate, there wasn't a crew available, so I'd probably have ended up stuck in Chicago. That'd wouldn't have been good.

Update: On the ground in Victoria...
