Didn't see any replies yet, so that must mean y'all is waitin' for me to
take the bait, right? Okay, will do. Can hardly pass up on an opportunity
to "spread the word" in a place I've been walking around in for so many
years. I'll be contacting Mark Overmeer shortly.
Oh, and that doesn't mean I can handle the booth all on my own; some more
personnel is definitely needed. And equipment. But I'll ask for that again
once I can be sure that people have a calendar for 2006.
Also, I'll do only the booth. If anyone wants to hold a talk or organize a
BoF session, please take the appropriate action yourself.
