Hi All Tappers,

To answer a few queries, no I didn't get paid at the show..it was a free
dinner and drinks though (the bartenders loved the show). But, as at
the street fair in Manhattan last year when it was on the local news,
publicity like this is priceless.

Future on Broadway or in Vegas? Let me dust off my Elvis Halloween
costume....

I wish you all a great Thanksgiving, and may your demos and labs always
work.......
