Hi Jack,

Your mentioning LavaCon reminds me of an anecdote: Two years ago, when the
economy was bottoming out and companies were downsizing daily, I got a
postcard for LavaCon and burst out laughing. I mean, go up to my boss and
say, <monty python>"by the by squire, I need to attend a seminar in Hawaii? They'd put
me away.</monty python> I envy LavaCon their location, but they'd probably get better
attendance if they were based in a city that wasn't such a vacation
paradise. Minneapolis (IceCon) or Kansas City (FlatCon) would be much
better; I think I could attend in that case. ;)
