Bring your own chair. :-) Seriously, there were a lot of people there last night. More than they were expecting, I think. Heh. I'll see if I can fit one in the back seat of the car. :) I wonder where I stored those old collapsible camping chairs... :) Sounds like it will be fun. Hopefully I can mee...

Excited for the next TechTalk

I plan to be at the upcoming tech talk in Provo on Tuesday and am very excited about it. From your experience with the previous session in SLC, is there anything that it would be especially good for me to bring?

Looking forward to it,
