- Michael and others,
I'm in Los Aneles now at 4:30 am local time. Couldn't sleep and started working on an Internet Roacming connection.
I got it to work finally and read your mails exchanged. Will follow your thread and will try to join you at Tapped In Sunday.
I presume it's at the usual time for Webheads.

hope you do. Many people at these kinds of conferences just go and lurk,
and that is quite acceptable. Just think of it as having a free pass to an
