Thanks, Robert -- at this point we need ideas about what to put on a flier
and/or advertisement. So if you have some ideas about that, please let us
know as soon as you can!

The GDC session proposals were due many, many months ago and we only had one
session accepted. So if you have session proposal ideas, they will be for
GDC 2010 and not the one in March 2009.

Good luck with holiday prep!!

Yeah...the roof caved in so me and about 8 neighbors in my apartment
complex are moving and it's icy and bitterly cold out...

Then I broke my leg slipping on ice on the edge around the
uhaul/moving fan where you are supposed to step up so you can get
into the truck safely. So to be extra safe, I grabbed onto the strap
that is supposed to help you further...which broke. And boom...there
I was with a broken leg. But at least I took the extra insurance on
the rental for once...so the medical and the rental is all covered
because the safely strap wasn't supposed to just pop off the truck...

I have surgery on Jan 5th...after that I'll set up some SIG meeting
times to discuss current projects.

The GDC people can take a little while to respond but if you haven't
heard anything by Wednesday, email them again and then I can also
look for more contacts.

Yes. I was Stalin in the last life. That's the only explanation for all
