Unless you want web server uptime? This is what greets me when I try to book a flight through American Express Travel. I have great confidence in Amex right now - love the generic 500 message. Wonder how well configured that server is?
I'm at The Complete Workflow Solution event that has been organized by Glazer's and Microsoft. It is being held at Art Wolfe's studio in Seattle and kicked off with Art spending 90 or so minutes entertaining and wowing us with his work and tales. A most illuminating, riveting and moving journey around some beautiful and remote locations.

You didn't ask but I thought I'd share anyway - after all, what would blogging be without gratuitous detail about stuff that perhaps only interests me?
Ever since I got my iPhone, I've become an AppStore Whore, downloading pretty much anything that looks interesting. So here's a tour of what's on my iPhone (red box indicates installed apps). All of these are free with one exception.
The two greatest phenomena combined: Facebook + iPhone. Unstoppable? Great little app that gets the status of all your FB friends in one place (a la Twitter), lets you edit your profile, see your FB contacts like the iPhone Contacts app, chat with online contacts and check your FB inbox.
A somewhat controversial location-aware social networking app. Controversial because it allegedly spams people via SMS, though it perhaps this is now fixed (I haven't been spamming my contacts so they tell me.) Cool because it updates Facebook and Twitter.
If you can hum it, say or type the title, or record it playing somewhere, midomi will identify the song, let you buy it on ITMS and watch videos of it on YouTube. A winner if it is as accurate as Shazam!
Not for me those $5 apps or games. Nope, ever since I started my new fitness programme (20/20 Lifestyles) I've been looking for a good mobile meal tracker. $15 later through the iPhone AppStore, I ended up with Absolute Fitness. So far so good. It seems to have most of what I want though it's food database is lacking for branded stuff. Desired future features include a web interface for tracking and better data entry through a real computer and the ability to export the data.
There now follow some pictures of the app.
Main food and exercise log screen
Drill down into specific foods. Nutrition information is shown for the exact quantity specified rather than serving size
Daily summary showing that I'm over my carb allowance. These daily allowances can be autocalculated based on your weight, height, age and sex, or manually entered if you are following a specific diet.
Tapping on the a line item on the daily summary screen shows you a ranked list of foods contributing to that item - in this case carbs.
Adding a custom food type
Selecting a pre-defined food type
Lists of different exercises, or define a custom one
Another way of entering a food or exercise is to search for it
