Sad as I am to be leaving the wonderful English summer behind again so soon - I'm heading off to Toronto tomorrow to attend the Microsoft World Partner Conference.
The fact that the weather is going to be between 30 and 40 degrees centigrade has nothing to do with my excitement at going - honest.
With all the recent announcements over Small Business Server coming to an end, and its Office 365 pricing hikes, oh, and the surprise launch of its Surface tablet - I think there will be plenty for me to discuss with the various execs I'm due to be meeting with next week.
I have a pretty good idea of the questions that I'll be asking, although there is no guarantee that I will get the answers I'm looking for - it is often difficult for the execs to get their ducks in a row so soon after such major announcements - but I'm confident they will do their best to explain the reasoning behind all the decisions.
Of course if you want me to ask any other specific questions - please contact me on Twitter @Yirrelli - and I will do my best to get them answered.
If you are going over there yourself - I'd love to meet up with you and get your opinions on the hoof so to speak - so please do come on over if you see me.
I will apologise in advance for my ensemble at the party on Tuesday - but I figured in for a penny......
I'm planning on updating you with all the Microsoft news on Channelweb - so do stay tuned.
