No problem. Don't feel bad for misunderstanding. This is how many SPUGgers
end up giving their first presentation. They're often some of the best
presentations too. The person requesting the topic has a genuine interest
in the topic and a fresh pair of eyes that often bring informative
insights that someone already familiar with the topic may miss.

As it stands now, we have the following openings (as far as I know):

18 May
15 June
20 July (warning: OSCON in PDX this week)
17 August
(and so on)

We haven't heard from Ingy yet if he wants to claim a particular date. But
setting a deadline does wonders for motivation (please do not quote
Douglas Adams). So, what's your preference?

(My humble apologies for top-posting previously. It's a $work thing that
messes me up often.)

                                things can go wrong at once.
