    Very informative. Illustrator has always been my program of choice. I kinda miss it since my job doesn't always require me to use it. Great job DTM!

    Yes - the Ledet Offices have a basement level. There should be a sign directing you if you go to the front door. Basically the parking lot is split, and one part is to the left of the Ledet sign as you enter the parking lot. This smaller area leads directly to the basement level, whereas the parking lot to the right leads to the main front entrance. There is actually a small staircase that joins the two.

    I read somewhere about meeting in the basement. Is it this meetup or something else? Will there be signs to point us to the meeting room? Thank you

  • Steve H.

    BTW - I see lots of activity on the RSVPs - I truly appreciate all those of you who are keeping it up to date as your plans change. Space is tight for this meeting, and it really helps us if you can change to NO if you find you cannot make it tonight. Thanks!!!

    July 11, 2012

  • Steve H.

    Yeah we'll tell you once you are here. No Chweeting! ;-)
