Today's the day: we're meeting tonight at 7pm at CubeSpace.

Also, I'll have my laptop open with 2.6 and 3.0 interactive interpreters 
up and running.  Anyone's welcome to plug it in to the projector to show 

I also ran off a copy of the What's New 2.6 docs but if anyone else can 
it'd be great to have more copies circulating.  My printer's nearly out 
of toner and this copy is hard to read.  Tip: the whatsnew.pdf from the 
PDF docs download prints best.

See you tonight!
