This might be fun, if just to see a lot of sweet hardware.  I'm going to try
to make it, so if anyone wants to join me, let me know (be sure to RSVP, per
below).

>    into May due a variety of reasons, which include: avoiding
>    tax time, various holidays and speaker/facility unavailability.

>    SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:
>    ---------------------
> 
>    * IN ORDER TO PASS THROUGH SECURITY, WE NEED YOU TO RSVP
>    * PRIOR TO THE MEETING DAY, SO WE CAN GET YOUR NAME ON THE ATTENDEE
>    * LIST.  ADVANCE REGISTRATION AND PHOTO ID ARE REQUIRED!
>    * RSVP DEADLINE 30-APR-2003 16:00.  <<<< PAY ATTENTION, DEADLINE!
>    * Keep an eye out on the deadline date and time, as it may change.
> 
>    Please RSVP if you know you are attending or if you think you may
>    be attending.  This will help us arrange for a letter to security
>    for all of Unigroup.  It will also help us to determine the correct
>    amount of food and refreshments.
> 
>    To REGISTER for this event, please RSVP by:
> 
>    a) If at all possible, please use the Unigroup Registration Page:
>          http://www.unigroup.org/unigroup-rsvp.html
>       This will allow us to have some automation in the RSVP process.
> 
>    b) If you must Email us, send an EMail containing the FIRST and
>       LAST NAMEs of the persons attending to the Unigroup RSVP
>       address:
>          unigroup-rsvp at unigroup.org
>       The Email subject should start with "RSVP".
>       You may optionally include your contact phone number (that
>       day) or other current information.
> 
>       DO NOT simply reply to this Email, sending us back the entire
>       announcement (we already have it); leaving the subject as it
>       was, and NOT containing the phrase "RSVP" as requested.  In
>       that case, your message just looks like failed mail and it
>       makes it impossible to automate the RSVP process and get
>       you registered for our event.
> 
>       ALSO: Do NOT give us an Email address which is over quota,
>       cannot receive any new Email, or which requires our automated
>       shell scripts to respond in some manner to YOUR InBox's
>       anti-spam efforts which try to confirm that our shell scripts
>       are human beings.  All of this causes us to receive bounces
>       from your address when we send out the RSVP-ACKs, which will
>       cause us to remove your address from our lists.
>       You must have a working and valid Email address in order
>       to get on the Unigroup Meeting Attendee List, which will
>       grant you access to our meetings.  Be sure to proof-read
>       your Email address before submitting the RSVP request.
