  i realize this might be over-simplifying but i think i mentioned
once that one of the primary goals for any KWLUG presentation (or for
most presentations in general, for that matter) should be that, even
before the presentation is over, the attendees should be thinking,
"man, i can't *wait* to get home and try that."

  is that an unfair over-simplification?
