I might be coming to NYC later in the month. But not for this. I would encourage others to keep in mind that I won't be there.

Yes, even if Scrut isn't there I would not expect him to be there, we don't usually have beer, just coffee.

Anyone else who wants to join us should register soon, 'cause spots are flying faster than previous years!

We are already more than half full, at the moment, with 30 registrations and 9 sessions submitted.

Thanks for reminding me. I almost reserved a spot for you and your hired escort. (I assume she won't be coming, either. Right?)

We are now "SOLD OUT", or technically: AT CAPACITY, since it is a free event.

If you register now, you will get on the waiting list.

Once people realize that I really won't be there, you'll get some cancellations.

On the contrary, I think registrations picked up after I started telling people that you weren't going to be there.
