I wanted to talk to you in person during the last SVLUG meeting, but 
didn't get the chance since you weren't present.  Not sure what happened 
to that meeting; the speaker didn't show up.  This was the SCSI target 
emulator session a couple of weeks ago.

Perhaps I will get to meet you in person sometime to say hello.

I will refrain from escalating this thread further.
