    I'm going to see if I can get someone to swap shifts with me so I can attend this month's Tampa SLUG meeting. Sadly, it's ultimately up to management whether they let it go through. I'll keep you guys posted.

    Hey Sam- I am considering my options regarding the Horatio house. If there is no interest I plan to repair it, clean it and rent it out.
