Amazing!!
All these interesting meetings. If only I was independently rich and not
working
70 hours a week!!

What XMCA-o-phants can do that would be really helpful is to send reports if
they attend any of these
interesting conferences to xmca so we could at least learn vicariously when
we have time to stop and
look and and smell the roses.
