Thanks for your offer to help.  We did have some problems with the
blugevents list so we moved our discussion back over to this main list. 
For the minimal traffic we had it didn't seem worthwhile to mess with
the other list.

It would be nice if you could stop by our booth and potentially spend a
little time there to boost our presence.  There is no need to haul your
sun station over to the show, I think we have enough demo equipment.
