Don't we all, Ian??? I mean, why settle for second best.
I know I'm worth it, and I am sure you are too (if for no other
reason than the company that you keep).
Thanks for the reassurance that Rohit's VOID bits actually do
get read by SOMEONE. I always wondered.
And Vancouver you say? I may be able to accommodate that.
OOPSLA is having their conference there in October, and if
Rohit will get his butt in gear and actually write a paperrr
for it I'm sure it will be accepted.
Maybe the females in your office will motivate him to work so
he can get up to Vancouver in October to meet them...
