My excuse: I was busy helping out with the laboratory workshops and thus
couldn't attend the lecture-demo workshop. Advertisement: The lab
workshops were also very good and everyone learned quite a bit there too.
Please attend if you can!

So, what is this "Rolling Objects" demo that so tantalizes your folks?
