Hi Raul: No apologies required -- I took your response exactly as you 

I thought the remote access presentation was terrific, and I've been 
using many of the concepts and techniques you presented.  Since I found 
it so valuable, I thought that a wider audience would benefit too.  OGLF 
seems like a good place for such an audience-widening.

Aside from flitting about at various (non-Linuxy) KW meetings, recently 
I haven't been getting out much to Ubuntu-ca in Toronto 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/Toronto or MUMU 
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mumu-ca/ (and MUMU doesn't really do 
formal presentations anyway, it's more like the Zeke's portion of KWLUG).

Still, if you're willing to present in an informal setting we can 
carpool to Mississauga some day -- the meeting on 21 September is the 
Second Anniversary meeting of MUMU, so a kick-app presentation would be 


(Yes, this should probably be a private conversation.  Just pretend 
we're talking too loud on the bus.)
