I hope to be there... (just kidding) I'll be there with bells on. Also I can bring the gear I had in the swap section as well. Considering I have missed all the MUG's

I'm going to be late to the presentation. I have to make a short presentation of my own at the Peterborough City Council meeting Monday night. That meeting starts at 6:30, but I'll be lucky if they get to me in the first hour. I feel bad about this. I was inspired to install Arch by Jason's presentation, which I also had to miss, and I was looking forward to learning some new Arch tricks from Brian's presentation. :( Unless I hear otherwise, I'm going to assume everyone will still be at Applewood Manor until at least 9:00, eating pizza. That's where I'll head unless I'm much later than that. Brian, forgive me in advance for asking you a bunch of questions about stuff you'll probably cover.

I'm giving them an overview of our Harper Creek brook trout study in response to their casino construction plan. I would also like to make a presentation in support of the proposed Charlotte Street bike lane, but I won't if that keeps me there much later. There will be several others addressing that.

If you scheduled your presentation in advance, there should be a list on the City website that tells you where you will appear in the ranking.

I know my place in the order (#8). What I don't know is when presentations will start or how long presenters will be questioned by Counsel members.

I think we will be bringing the pizza, to the start of the meeting. So perhaps we should eat the pizza, while it is hot and then have the presentation..

I SWEAR TO THE HIGH HOLY DIGITAL GODS!!!! That projector overheard us waxing nostalgic over older systems, and decided 640x480 ought to be enough for anybody.

Thanks for your presentation, Brian, and these notes! Great way to end the year and sorry the projector had to be a PITA. We used to have regular issues with it not working correctly before but we've never seen it drop to 640x480. One of the members afterward wondered if it was an issue with the particular Nvidia driver used that caused it. But who knows?
