I will be present but in a limited Capacity as I am feeling rather (not contagious) unwell.

If you can't make it, Brian, we can probably muddle along without you. I have some networking knowledge so can probably handle some questions.

Thanks, Jason. I was particularly impressed with the adjustable window tiling feature that you demonstrated. I wish that Ubuntu and Mint would pick that up from them.
