I'd planned to surprise Howard by showing up and helping. The job I'm at in DC looked like it was going to be done in time, and my employer didn't have anything else they needed me for.
Or so I thought. The job ran an extra day, and now instead of going to Provo, I'm going to Tampa to do a quick one-day upgrade. Sigh.
I guess I'll have to go see Howard some other time...especially since the dirty rotten so-and-so isn't going to Penguicon this year.
