Hmmm... You're probably right.  That would support having the event
all afternoon.

OK.  I'll probably make the payment Monday with the reservation.  Anything
to help defray the cost will be appreciated.

That sounds like a good start.  If anyone wants to help organize it,
I just created a list linux10 at sbay.org, which you can subscribe at
Note: this list is just for volunteers to organize it.  All lurkers
(curious to see what's going on but don't have time to help) should stay 
low and quiet.

Do we have time to get that complicated?  It's only 7 weeks (50 days) away.
We got such a late start that we'll have to cut some corners.

Well, I tend not to go for the more elaborate arrangements anyway.  But
that's just me.  I was thinking that there shouldn't be a disincentive to
just showing up at the last minute if your schedule suddenly opened up.
But if someone thinks tickets and a budget are necessary and they want to
handle that, then it's possible.  We can get a headcount estimate just with
a web form.
