      Hrm. There was a weird issue going on last night as well. Google’s Mapping system was automatically converting location points from Columbus to Denver. Today it’s South Carolina? Weird. We’re looking into it.

    Walker you didn’t really talk about the elephant in the room. If I were here as newbie to Cbus, I wouldn’t know all there is to know about ComFest. As this will be my 23rd ComFest, I’ll just say, Happy ComFest!
