Thanks for posting! Will I see you at Desert Sleuths?

Wish I could be there, but alas.. too much work here.

I'm really looking forward to the Desert Sleuths conference. A great line-up of speakers. For the out of towners you might want to know the beautiful resort is offering rooms at only $69 so you can get a great conference for pretty darn cheap.
