Dr Philip Hazel of Exim and PCRE fame is retiring at the end of September. The Exim Course 2007 will be one of the last possibilities of meeting Philip. In spite of the cost, I have registered for the course, which will be held between the 24th and 27th of July in Cambridge. A conference entitled Exim, and other Mail Systems will precede the course, and I’d certainly like to attend that as well, so I hope the tentative dates remain (I don’t want to have to travel to Cambridge twice). I’m even thinking of speaking at the conference, if they’ll have me, but I haven’t yet worded my abstract.
