Great presentation today

Thanks for a good, lively one today (post-lunch is always hard, and you kept a hot room full of recently-fed people very interested) -- I'll be checking back for your slides and/or any audio or video of the talk. I'd like to watch it a few more times.

Thanks, I enjoyed doing it :)
