While we are at it...

Those that still believe in using Sneaker-Net will be attending the following convention...

   Western Shoe Association (WSA)
   Las Vegas 8-11 Feb 2003

...I don't think we have people that are members of both WSA & NANOG.

Also, I know that we have had NANOG's that overlap the World Series (Baseball) and the Superbowl (American Football), but for cricket lovers...

   Cricket World Cup 2003 begins on 9 Feb
   Johannesburg South Africa. 

...so that excludes most of the network operators within the British Empire from attending.  While talking about sports, if you leave NANOG on the Tuesday and fly that night to Auckland, NZ you will have just enough time to sleep off the jet-lag and witness...

   The America's Cup series begins in Auckland
   February 15, 2003 (Saturday).

... keep in mind you would loose a day flying over the International Date line. (you would loose Feb 12'th so you would still have Valentines day available).


   Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST)
   10 and 11-Feb-2003 
   FIRST Technical Colloquium
   Location: Europe, to be decided

...which means that there will be no-one available from the US Government to talk about "how to secure the Internet".  That reason alone should warrant a change of date! :-)
