 JohnSchinker  etw this week?
 dave  yes
 dave  yes it is
 JohnSchinker  is there a skypecast, or just stream?
 dave  john... is there usually skypecast
 JohnSchinker  there's always a skypecast, but I didn't see one scheduled, so I thought I'd check. I only really care so I can avoid the delay.
 JenM  Mr. Dave is setting one up as I type!
 JohnSchinker  :-) Thanks. Some people might be confused with the chat room, since EVO is now the default. That's where Jeff is at the moment.
 JenM  Actually, that is virtual Jeff. He is MIA this evening, but is here in "spririt". Be kind to Dave and I as we muddle through :)
