Email from Christopher Columbus to announce finding America?

These days, when I'm away I usually sit working online in my hotel room, waking early to check overnight what's happened. On the train, my phone rings (oops! shoud have been on mute) and I dash for the vestibule to answer. And I see about half of the people in travel waiting rooms online. We're in the world of near-constant connection.

How times have changed! And I realise just how much they've changed this week when I find myself staying in a basement hotel room, where neither my internet dongle nor my phone can get a signal. I'm back, as I post this, to the more social life of a cluster of netheads and communicators in the hotel's reception, or sittimg in the breakfast room (as I am at the moment) sending what I've written overnight, grabbing anything incoming, checking for crises to be dealt with [none that I can see ;-) ]

There IS a lot to be said for the occasional day off ... although that's never going to be total when you run your own business.

Off to catch the tube now there - at least at present - I'll not be contactable for a while. How very different to the days of the great explorers, who left from Plymouth for distant parts, and couldn't email home to say they'd made it safely.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
