Many thanks to all those who have volunteered to join the demo. It will
take place between 1345 aand 1400 local (Oslo) time which is 1245 UTC
(GMT), 0735 eastern, 1445 Turkey and Israel, 2045 Singapore, 2245
Melbourne and 0545 pacific time.

I will be grateful to all who join in, and am willing to owe especially
to those who join us from way outside working ours. (Does someone want to
volunteer to wake Peking?) There will be about 350 people wanting to talk
to you all.

For those who missed the message explaining the venue yesterday, it's
attached to this.
