Hi Attila,

What is your crowd?

For telecom or other data-recovery (where the "jitter" thread is 
relevant), you may want to also cover MTIE for instance.

Also, you want to speak about "wander".

I'll toss you my slides from my 5 h lecture this Monday. The audience 
was a bit different, but maybe you get some ideas and I can explain some 
of the points.
