An aside: Rohit, JoeK, and I will all be in Monterey January 5-8
(at the Marriott Hotel) if anyone wants to visit. Rumor has it
JoeB is considering coming down, too... :)

Not better. Just differently-abled. :)

I added them to see if anyone was paying attention.

Yeah, no one seems to use the number 97 except us and the wall:

Watchit, I may have to flame you, dude...

When have we ever NOT aired our grievances? We're the most self-complaining
