This is really for Sam, but I think it's worth posting to the list.

Does this mean you have firm dates yet? I'd like to book flights, time
off work, etc. as soon as I can...

Sounds fun!

It occurs to me that I gave a small talk on the Tek 4050 series last
autumn (fall). I'd like to come to the VCF, and I could probably bring
my 4052 and some demo programs, and give an adapted version of the talk
(either in a scheduled slot or probably more suitably on a demo stand
with the machine).

Finally, Sam, could you put me on the VCF mailing list, please. I tried
to subscribe from the web page but we've just migrated to Lusedoze Not
Tolerable and Internut Exploder, with the result that I couldn't get it
to work...

      Bloedem Volke unverstaendlich treiben wir des Lebens Spiel.
      Grade das, was unabwendlich fruchtet unserm Spott als Ziel.
      Magst es Kinder-Rache nennen an des Daseins tiefem Ernst;
      Wirst das Leben besser kennen, wenn du uns verstehen lernst.
