Thanks for the note and update, DE. While I'm disappointed about CivCon '09's cancellation, I'm hopeful that there will be another such attempt and that it will be successful. I can't say that I can commit to being apart of the Committee for it, but I certainly will want to attend such an event if I can (would need to be in July or August, and in Canada or the continental United States, for that).
Hey Dan, I just saw that CivCon '09 has been cancelled. A crying shame for all the work you put in it! I hope you'll keep on trying to get something like it together - next year perhaps? - and that I can attend it sometime.
Ah, well, enjoy your vacation (you people do have those, right?). It'll be another 2½ week before I'm home for good, then I'll look at getting a laptop and Audacity and so on.
