I'm still willing to come talk about any of the above, which should generate interesting discussions. I just need to know there's enough interest soon enough that I can schedule the trip from SE Dallas. I've been wanting to come to your meetings again but it's a big drive from SE Dallas, but I'll do it for these topics if there's enough serious interest. :)
