Just a reminder about Wednesday evening's event. All are welcome to
come over to the basement, whether to observe or to participate. Just
let me know ahead of time so I can have enough chairs and snacks.
The test itself starts at 9:45 and only lasts about 15 minutes. Arrival
any time after 7:00 is OK, but please don't arrive after 9:30 -- we'll
be busy then!
