   not to worry. we'll work on having not one 
but two newbie nuggets to supplement your talk. 
   meetings start at 7:35 PM with a newbie 
nugget--probably two newbie nuggets in your 
case. then comes The Talk (you're on), which 
goes until 8:30 to 8:45. then there are 
announcements ("mapping") and getting together 
("random access"). 
   per above, you'd start your talk around 
8 PM and finish up around 8:30 or a little 
later. usually there are five or ten minutes 
worth of announcements, and some people stay 
to chat with each other (e.g. follow up on 
a job announcement). nobody's ever complained 
about a talk that was too short. 
   if there's anything we can do to help you 
out, make things pleasant (e.g. give a ride), 
or whatever, let us know. 
   many thanks, 
jim for baypiggies
