Cool.  Steve Spicer and I are going, and staying in the DoubleTree
(official hotel?) close to the event.  I've got the Hotel booked for
the Sunday before, and the Saturday after, just in case something
comes up.

I need to sit down and spend some quality time with the list of
sessions, there's a lot of good stuff being presented - sorry to hear
you're not presenting.  I'd be interested in any tips you can send my
way.
