Hi there -- I had down next Tuesday as the meeting date -- I
think that I must have marked down the wrong date since you
and Kevin were both online. This week is finals week so I've
been administering and grading those all week.

So, yes, I agree! :) Let's meet this next Tuesday -- I'll send
out the link to the world clock in a bit. I'm stuck in a
meeting that's run way over time. 

More in a bit!
Michelle

>> Hi Reid,

>> In addition we'll also have demos throughout the day --
