    Thank you to Derek and the committee for the accommodations. Thank you to the HPCC gang for the presentation, the pizza, and the wedding of HPCC and R. Extra bonus was the news that there is an ECL (HPCC Code) plug-in for the Eclipse IDE. HPCC just keeps getting better.

    It brings new ideas into handling dynamic data and how can we get meaningful information out of it. Information about Thor and Roxie was helpful.

    Are there other locations that don't fill up as fast. Some of us cannot commit to meetings until a week prior...oh the pains of 9-5.

    Could this be recorded to be viewed later?

    Is there a way I can do this remotely? This would be a pretty long trip for a 2-hour meetup. I could probably justify it if I can stay to discuss longer.
