Staff light this weekend

    Just a small announcement that several mentors and I might be a bit scarce this weekend. We are having a sort of impromptu get-together which requires some travel. So don't fret if we don't get to issues or PMs immediately. More information perhaps in the future. Thanks!!

    There will be Mentors around, but even those of us who will be on travel will have full internet connection, especially once we're there. At least, that's what Greg indicated. So we can still check in to PF whenever we have the chance.

    Okay, but only so long as the aforementioned information with details is supplied at some point.

    Oh, hell no. You are NOT backing out. I need someone to hold me steady at the event. Evo's too frail and I might be very wobbly (drunk).

    Too bad my wife and I already had visitors from abroad scheduled for this weekend. :cry:

    I hope the streaming video works out OK. (It's only for invitees who can't make it, so don't you other folks get any ideas... :smile:)

    Oops, I forgot my sarcasm warning. :biggrin:

    Y'know, I never really did get that invitation, though. You're not going to live that down, lol! I still need to check on why my mail didn't get forwarded from my old address; I'd have thought at the least it would have gotten returned to you. Maybe it's just taking its time getting returned to sender. Thank goodness for phones and emails.

    You're going to have a hard time getting drunk on sparkling apple cider though.

    Hmm...maybe it wasn't just a forwarding problem with my invitation if Russ didn't get his. That really sucks! We'll miss seeing you there, Russ. But, yeah, Greg has been asking for your email address for a while when you didn't RSVP...I thought I had it, but it must be an old email that you're not checking now.

    I have to say, though, I'm glad I'm among the "retired" staff attending. I won't have to worry about checking in to make sure PF hasn't gone down in a ball of flame wars with everyone away. :biggrin: I'm looking forward to this trip. I really need a little break.

    And, yeah, I think we'll have pictures to post after...though I'm terrible about getting my photos uploaded and sorted, so don't be surprised if it takes me some time after returning to get the photos posted (it was hard enough getting the time off work, so I'm sure I'll be swamped when I return).

    Russ, check with Greg, I believe he has already arranged for your ticket.

    You know what? I hope you all have a horrible time!.:grumpy: (Well maybe not really, but it might make me feel a little better about having to miss it.)

    No need to be bitter about it, janus. We'll send you all those little umbrellas that come with our drinks! :)

    Speaking of which, I should be on my way to the airport already! See you all there!
