Thanks for the trailer!  I am certainly looking forward to tomorrow's
meeting - though I may ask pesky questions about the comparative
advantages and disadvantages of other (distributed) redundant storage
systems.

As far as I know, the meeting is still on for tomorrow and I plan on
being there as host.  The weather outlook does not look very positive:
40km/h+ wind, flurries  and -18C tomorrow evening.  If you want to
reschedule, I suspect the group would be receptive to that as we are not
in the business of imperiling speakers or attendees. In any case, the
list will make any strong feelings on this point known shortly!

Cheers,
Lori
