Looking out at the cold and rainy whether makes me really happy that I’m leaving for Brazil in two hours. It’s carnival time in Rio de Janeiro starting tomorrow February 1st and last for 5 days. Staying at Ipanema beach should guarantee a lot of fun. After the carnival I’ll be travelling north along the sea side till I get to Salvador. The plan is to make a lot of stops along the way and travel to some of the islands off the coast of Brazil.
The trip is my first vacation this year, so I’m not going to be online much. Unfortunately that also means that I won’t be blogging until I get back home. However, I do have some posts in the pipeline. One is about making the DOS attack prevention module thread safe, since people have been asking me to do so. I'm also giving a tech-talk at Microsoft Copenhagen March 5th - a week after my return - so it will be a bit rushed when I get back home.
As a side note I just want to mention that I'll have my last cigarette in Brazil. That's right, it's time for me to quit. I've heard that it's a good idea to tell people that you stop smoking because it will make it easier to quit. Something with pride and obligation. So now it's out there.
