Message 00391: Re: tomorrow?

sigh, i really don't want to get sucked into a long evening. i know he would like it, but those things are so long. I notice you're leaving before Larry's book thing which I also feel compelled to go to but would really rather not.

where is the party/announcement/whatever? (please don't tell him I might come ... i'd have to wait to decide until tomorrow morning ... if the nytimes thinks pacer is a story, I'll need to focus on that. I gave Markoff a copy of the dvd.)

We might just have to do phone.

Have you been making copies of tarballs? mdkail is having a baby, and if this makes slashdot we might get hammered, so no guarantees of service and you might want a headstart.

I'm writing the readme now, a little essay about how if you copy this tarball you have a moral responsibility to stick with it and make the archive better. Kind of a moral gnu left. I'm trying to head off the script kiddies that grabbed the f2/f3 stuff, threw ad words on it, then went away. I know it won't work, but I think it has to be stated.

what does your tomorrow look like? I might be able to break away. I assume
you're in the presidio?  In any case, we should talk.

mostly. i've got a meeting at 12:45-2:15p, a talk from 2:45-3:15, a
meeting from 3:45p-5:00p, and then brewster has his big
announcement/showoff party at 6p. (i'm sure he'd love it if you wanted
to speak for a couple minutes.) but i can do any of the other times
and I can probably break away from the meetings if I have to.
