Lou Vega a thump to the brain

This post-meeting post is actually a little delayed because I went from giving my presentation at the user group straight to the hospital where my son (Little Lou) was being admitted. To make a long story short, he has a rare medical condition which every now and again causes problems which require him to be admitted to the hospital. It's to the point now where when we notice the signs and symptoms, we just call his surgeon and then the surgeon calls the hospital and arranges for him to bypass the ER and get directly admitted. Little Lou is fine right now - this was actually his shortest stay ever, he was only there for just under 20 hours before he was stabilized and released to go home!

Back to the meeting info - I was a little nervous doing a live demo of my Windows Mobile call blocker program since Mr. Murphy likes to show up when you try something new for the first time, but it actually went really well so I thank Mr. Murphy for kindly staying away. I've posted the slide deck and demo code for that on the GC.NUG web site, but I'll also post it on my VBMobile blog so those of you who aren't part of the user group don't have to register with just to get it. That should be posted later today.

We also had a surprise showing by Murray Gordon who had recently left Charleston to work for Microsoft out in Atlanta so as soon as Murray sends me the the photos he was taking during the meeting I can get those posted too (hint - Murray!)

The May meeting will likely be held on May 15th and we've got John Lunsford scheduled to speak about LINQ. If you haven't seen John present before, you don't want to miss this..his presentations have been packed at every code camp I've seen him present!

I am sorry I could not make the last meeting also, but I am definitely interested in LINQ. Glad to know that little Lou is doing better.

I am anxiously waiting on the invitation (EventBrite) for the next event.
