Yes, very. There's probably some way I could extract the information
easily, but I'd need to upgrade this somewhat ancient linux box...

And it sounds like he feels like he has more to say, which is good.  
You should think about having him back in a little while for part II.

Overall I think the talks have been pretty good of late (e.g. Chris
Mungall's talk was especially interesting, and covered territory you 
don't often hear about elsewhere).  

(It's too bad you've got me scheduled for January.)
