I'll post this reply publicly for everyone's edification.

I'm sorry if the web page is vague about the date (it is), but there is
not a firm date yet. So far the show will most likely fall somewhere
inside September. The venue that I'm currently negotiating with (The
Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA) has the dates of
September 25-27 set aside for me should I decide to stage it there. I'd
really like to as it is a nice facility and is right in the middle of the
Silicon Valley which is good for all sorts of reasons, but the price is a
lot higher than last year's venue (by about twice as much). But I should
have a firm date hopefully within 4 weeks. I realize people need to make
reservations and the earlier the better, but know that I am working hard
to secure a venue as quickly as possible.

At this point there is a good chance that I will choose the SCCC and the
dates will be September 25-27, but don't base your travel plans around
that yet. It all depends on what sort of financing I can secure in the
next 3 or 4 weeks.

I'll talk to you about this offline.

Hmmmm...I thought I tested it under MSIE and it should be working. I'll
check again. If anyone else is experiencing problems with the forms
features then please let me know. Thanks for the tip. And yes, I will
add you to the notification list. To be addded to the mailing list I'll
need your physical address, unless you just want e-mail updates.
