All,

I've inserted the list specified by Reid and added what I need at our wiki 
page for the tutorial
http://www.igda.org/wiki/index.php/GDC_2006_Tutorial

So far that is all I've got as response for the call for hardware needed for 
the tutorial day

Also, this Tuesday only Kevin and I was online. I think we need one meeting 
before the Christmas Holidays. How about Tuesday next week?

Kind regards,
Thomas
