I was very excited to hear that we would be having our very own ALT.NET conference here in the UK. I waited with mounting anticipation to spend all day talking about ReSharper. But I was thwarted; unfortunately they could only book a room for ten people. It was full 0.05 seconds after the registration opened. I waited all night with my finger poised above my mouse, ready to click, but in a moment of weakness I had to answer a call of nature. By the time I got back Ben had made his announcement and the room was full.
Sometimes it pays to write sarcastic blog posts. Alan Dean, one of the organisers of ALT.NET very kindly got in touch and managed to squeeze me in. Thanks Alan!
