Yes, a very good protocol. The people who weren't there missed some
excellent presentations. The one on active logging was the most
interesting I'd heard in a long time: that should be good for any
number of magazine articles and conference presentations.
I'm sorry to say that I got there very late; first because I spent 15
minutes in line to pay my fool tax, and second because I had a h*ll of
a time finding MusicMatch. That was my own fault entirely, since I
copied the address down wrong and mis-interpreted the driving
instructions. But, I must say, I had no idea there were any businesses
there! I had always thought it was one of those week-at-a-time
business hotels. I drove by twice before I got a clue.
