Hi Phil,

That's great, thank you very much. I've just emailed Tom too, to check
his availability.
Yes, sorry - I meant Colorado not California - too many time zones in my
head today!
I hope your wait isn't too painful, and you have a good trip home

Cheers,

Jon

Jon,
Meeting in Chicago finished suddenly, so I have 4.5 hours to wait
now for the plane home. As I said, I can pm days the week of June 4
(except the 5th).
This is from memory, so I'll confirm next week.

Happy to participate by the way. I'm happy to talk with Tom as well,
if you can do the link.

Tom is normally in Boulder, but I guess he could be in California
that week.

Cheers
Phil
