Excellent! I'll do my best to get tonight video recorded. I may be a  
bit of a mess setting up in time, but I'll try to prepare early. If I  
finish what I'm working on today early, I'll dash home and start  
getting setup. Either way, thanks for letting me know :)

Aw *shucks* Thanks Wesley. :)  I really appreciate it the kind  
words.  :)

I can do this. Cory does have access to *much* better equipment than I  
do, so it's possible it will look more polished too :)   Usually, you  
can do everything that needs done with what I have, but it's such a  
pain. To "zoom in" on a speaker's face, to make it more visual, takes  
so much manual labor (seriously, an hour for a few minutes of  
speaking) - I don't have the equipment to do that in real time. Plus,  
last I heard, Cory could use the extra cash right now like most of us  
could.  :)

Thanks again for everyone for keeping this the most awesome Open  
Source community there is :)
