I am sure such a topic will bring up stories of nightmares that happened when people jetted off for their holidays. I am glad that in your case things worked out fine in the end, they probably were impressed with your eagerness to get the job ;) Alexandra - http://www.holidaysintheuk.com

## ... otherwise he would have been none the wiser! If it had been a bumpy ride he might just have been "none"

My dad recalled waiting in a plane in Africa, sizzling on the tarmac while the loading completed. He saw out of the window that some crates were marked 'Mining Explosives'; when he told the crew they got everyone out until the hold was checked and the paperwork re-issued, without the dynamite. As a bio-scientist he could read the German crate labelling, otherwise he would have been none the wiser!

Good advice Rene. I got to the point where I could travel from Zimbabwe to Europe for a week with only hand luggage And when I did have to take something bigger, I got a suitcase that doubled as a backpack. Makes it much easier than lugging even a wheeled suitcase.

But how did you "learn this lesson"? It sounds like there's a tale to be told here...

Better a week early rather than a week late :-)

Or maybe they could see that one day I would be "Magnificent" :-)

The solution to that is to leave your infants at home with your wife (my bill is in the post :-)

I learned this lesson way back, always travel ligth and hand carry my essntial clothes. Never with luggage that I can not control. I have always made a point of knowing the place were I am going to interview, even catch a glimps of who, if anyone works after hours.

“What are you talking about? You’re a day early – we weren’t expecting you until tomorrow!” I actually showed up a week early for an interview once. The people I was interviewing weren't in the office so the receptionist ended up calling several of them before everyone realized my calendoric foul up. I did not get that job.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
