...was held on Saturday, July 28th, at the good Vijay Sappani's place. A great time was had by all. I left with my sobriety intact, and didn't try that joke with the lampshade.
It was fun putting faces and voices to the people you meet on-line. For example, Cherniak was there, and was disarmingly normal...actually charming. The whole "elfin" thing is overblown, or at least I saw no overtly elfin behavior. Had great conversations with "Buckets" and Steve V that will no doubt advance the cause of the revolution, and Vijay whomped up some impressive chicken wings.
A most pleasant way to spend a (mostly) sunny Saturday
