Same. :-)

Keen to help prepare, but I'd suggest Tridge and Pia as representatives for
LA/OSIA if we manage to get two in (a few people have pinged me about doing
it, but I'd push T&P forward without a moment's pause).

I'd suggest pulling some folks together for a conf call one night this week,
which could be another activity performed with a view to revive OSEG, which
would be really valuable given the opportunities on offer (and created, such
as the Census and OZOSA) this year.
