Can we use the chipy wiki to give people a central place to "rsvp"?  if 
not then i guess we can do the email thing...  on the day of the event we 
should probably put my cell # up on the website... that way if you are 
caught by the security ninjas you can call me an I'll bail you out. Course 
then we want to remember to remove my phone number after the meeting so I 
don't get angry calls from ruby people about my cartoon of the python 
snake eating why's foxes ;)
