Hello Guy, All
         just want to observe from a non-attendee's viewpoint that 
Guy has been doing a super job of keeping everyone informed and 
updated and handling all the requirements on him with imagination and 
         all the best for Adamcon 18 and a big hand for the Chicago 
organizing committee--doesn't Chicago have a long history of Organizations?
