Hi Karl -

Thanks for filling up Scott's shoes - and for rescuing this meetup.

I have been a dormant member of the meetup for a while. I turned up
for a couple of meetings in the last six months - but no one else did.
 I guess that's because Scott was in the process of getting stretched.
As a result - I am still new to the meetup -and you'd be the first
organizer so far as I am concerned. I also see a lot of new members
who might say the same thing.

This is all very good - since I've been an active blogger only since
the last couple of weeks.  My blog's called http://shaltrade.com and
presents some quirky ideas and links on trading. Hope you find it
interesting. I shall browse through your blogs as well - since much of
it is new to me.


In the meantime - I look forward to the first meeting - and if you
need any help - feel free to get in touch.

Best - Susmit
