opened to everyone. For details:

The talk will use the same slides as my Google talk. I'll give away a 
few free copies of TDPL as prizes to the persons who ask the most 
embarrassing questions.


Hope to see many of you there!

Is that to the embarrassment of the questioner or the questionee ;-)

Heh. Incidentally I've been asked the same at Google. The questionee! There's no embarrassment to the questioner - almost by definition. Andrei

Grrr! I have to publicly whine about my timing problem. I am a member of the ACCU and an active member who takes part in organizing the monthly talks in Silicon Valley; I live 5 minutes from the meeting location; I work 5 minutes from there too. But unfortunately I am on the other side of the globe on the 11th, organizing mini D meetings in Turkey. I can't have Andrei sign my copy of the TDPL, I can't meet him, I can't meet with other Bay D'ers. Argh! Argh! Aaaarrrgghhh!!! :) I will be in the area on the 13th. Perhaps he will still be around? :) Ali

Well, at least you have a really good excuse :)

I'd be up for a get together after work on the 13th (provided I can get to it).

Yes, I had to cancel for family reasons. Apologies - I forgot to notify this list. Andrei
