Since I'm giving Glen a ride from Concord in an hour and a half, I can
guarantee you that we won't be able to make it to Hollister ;)

However, that's a generous offer.  If someone else can pick them up,
that'd be great.  I don't know what life will be like when we meet at
Symantec next month.  I know they have an audio system, but I don't
know how they can integrate with the camera.
