I am sure that I COULD talk for an hour, but I know that I SHOULD not.
My presentation for the release party was intended to be 15 minutes,
and it encompasses most of what I know about Screen (I don't use
hardstatus lines or any of that fancy stuff). 

With that in mind, I could be bribed to go in one of two directions
with this: 

- We could use the June meeting for a number of quick (30 minute?)
  demo presentations on a number of topics. 

- I could rehash my August 2004 presentation on Low Powered Linux into
  a "Desktop Linux for Curmudgeons" presentation, which would include
  a component on Screen. 

Given that Chris Frey gave the original presentation on Screen that
got ME using it, maybe he has some ideas.

Rob Day might also be able to provide some insights into this. 

Also: I vaguely recall that Chris Frey was going to offer a git
presentation (and maybe a wxwindows one) and that Adam was going to
give us a presentation as well. Are those still on the table? If so
should I create presntation topics for them?
