    I just got back from the conference and they said that the 2002 CD will take 3-5 weeks to be posted out. So I'm waiting too. The suspense is killing me .

    Okay,
    Well 3-5 weeks is not that long, but often times it is an eternity
    Just make sure you post it up when you get it, until then may we wait forever. :C

    I don't even know how much will be put on the CD. It might be just the tutorial notes and some code. But they might include sound files some of the lectures. Who knows. There was heaps of interesting stuff discussed that wasn't in the tutorial notes. So if the CD misses some of the good stuff, which is likely, I'll try to fill in the blanks from what I remember of the sessions I went to.

    All we can do is wait faithfully for the CD's to get shipped and Australia Post to work its magic .

    PM me when the cd comes out. Some of those lectures looked very interesting. Thanks for telling us.
    Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive (the dang thing blew up)
