Hi AJ (and Australia),

Unfortunately I don't accept the nomination for Vice President.  I
couldn't anyway since it's after 5:45pm :)  I've only just downloaded mail
for the fist time since 9am or so this morning - I have a conference to
run, remember? :-)

Good luck to all candidates running, and thanks for the (undeserved)
confidence in me,
