I hope we get up to 40 or so. 23:19 <agd5f> Bart_Massey: cool. will do 23:20 <+Bart_Massey> I'll cc alanc so that he has them too 23:20 <alanc> thanks 23:20 <+mherrb> I also plan to send a reminder with a call for talks; the program is still empty. 23:21 <+Bart_Massey> Of course it is---it's more than a week before the event :-) 23:22 <+mherrb> and if people already have setup travel plans (flights numbers an so on) tell me when you arrive / leave. 23:22 <agd5f> mherrb: I'll ask. do you think we can get a fixed rate at a restaurant? costs can get out of control very easily with food and drink 23:23 <+mherrb> yes if we go as a 40 or so group I'll negiate something with a pre-arranged price. 23:24 <+mherrb> negociate even. 23:24 <+mherrb> otherwise it's a nightmare. 23:24 <agd5f> mherrb: ok, cool 23:24 * Bart_Massey realizes negotiate is a good spelling word 23:26 <+Bart_Massey> move to adjourn 23:27 <alanc> seconded 23:28 <agd5f> +1 23:28 <agd5f> mherrb: if you can send me some estimates, I'll see what I can come up with 23:28 <+Bart_Massey> Talk to y'all in a couple of weeks! 23:28 <+mherrb> ok.
