Hi all,

I'm in for it. But no more Chicago bashing regarding the cold (I know that was a while back, but still) :)

Hi Matt.

I would definitely go to a little west coast meetup.

Hi all,

Okay, what about the second set of dates?  March 4-8?

Although, to be perfectly honest, after how active the list has been
and how many things there have been discussed that would benefit from
-- or may even *require* -- in person contact, I am a bit bummed that
we can't get together sooner, to do things like talk about testing,
release schedules, better SPH/particle support, codifying analysis
modules and figuring out some packaging issues.

In December there's a scientific software workshop at TACC:

http://scisoftdays.org/meetings/2012/

Is anyone interested in going, and if so, perhaps having an in-person
meeting in the area held in conjunction with this?  Or, if not, then
maybe triyng to have a west coast meeting in December?  By then I
think the job scramble should have subsided considerably (certainly I
am counting on it for myself!) even if it picks up again a bit later.
