Hey Josh,

I know; I don't know if I'm going yet either.  If I am, I 
probably won't have my laptop, but will definitely have my Apex, 
and if they have wifi, I can chat with you and tell you what's 
going on.  I can also record it for you if you want.

opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical
