Hi all,

Regrettably, I've been laid up with a really nasty hacking cough cold and
won't be able to make it out tonight.  My sincere apologies.  If desired, I
can tack my talk onto the beginning or end of next month's presenter.

This totally sucks as I was looking forward to the talks. :(  Please post
