@Elizabeth: ...the corporate jet might be going that direction although probably not with me on it.

Tell them that you could personally introduce them to one of EE Times' brightest stars (if no one important turns up, you can introduce them to me LOL)

@mhrackin: Furthermore, those gels are a major contributor to the rate at which the little buggers mutate into anti-biotic resistant forms!

We are being hoisted by our own petards, as it were...

Have you been watching that "Virus wipes out the world" mini-series on TV caled "The Last Ship" -- the way I feel at the moment makes that seem particularly relevant to me.

Max, you are on target!  Many recent studies show that old-fashioned soap and water works better than the "high-priced spreads" in terms of killing off the bad guys.  Furthermore, those gels are a major contributor to the rate at which the little buggers mutate into anti-biotic resistant forms!

Since the company president and two VPs are hams, I doubt that I could convince them that it was a working trip. On the other hand it does somewhat improve the possibility that the corporate jet might be going that direction although probably not with me on it.

I might have better luck convincing them that I could learn all kinds of useful things at EElive... Need to think about this.

@Elizabeth: I need to make a count of vacation days etc.

Maybe you could persuade your boss that this was a working trip... making useful contacts... if they don't count this against your vacation, you'll pay your own expenses... just a thought...

@JCBond: ...I became very disciplined about using anti-bacterial hand-cleaners...

I've heard negative things about those -- that they kill some bacteria but leave others and that thsi is not a good thing -- personally I prefer soap and water for most occasions...

I'm considering it. Its a tempting thought but I need to make a count of vacation days etc. I also need to think of my elderly dog who I really don't like leaving at the boarding place for more than a few days.

And now you've reminded me of another reason that I don't like to fly.

Now of course if I could somehow hitch a ride on the corporate jet....
