Hey Jordan,

The launch of the new iPad and other serious engagements/emergencies have abruptly interrupted my entire plan for the Seminar. I have been trying very hard to make some adjustments for the 31st of March but to no avail just lately.
This is very painful for me and others, I am sure.
If possible please accept my sincere apology and work out something for the day.
I am so sorry.
