Sorry you cannot make it.  Perhaps we can reschedule for some time in 
the future.

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.
