Sorry you cannot make it. Perhaps we can reschedule for some time in
Since we are not having a speaker tonight, we can meet somewhere else
and talk Python; perhaps at coffee shop. The one I know is Cafe-Sole'
(sp?) at the corner of Table Mesa and Broadway in Boulder. The hacking
society meets there on a weekly basis and they have 820.11b. I'm open
to other suggestions, especially closer to the usual meeting place.
Send suggestions and RSVP to the list.
