Wow.  I think we go to rather different technical conferences (not
that I've been to any recently).

But more to the point -- You think you're not going to need tech
support staff with a "higher" tech solution?

the wrong check-box 3 years ago, having the whole archive show up on
the internet 5 hours after his arrival.
