Events cancelled today. Sorry about this, but a sneaky headcold has suddenly got a lot stronger, and if I don't rest up today I'll be a basketcase for the rest of the week. Apologies to Ed and Staff at San Mateo, and everyone who turned up to find an empty lectern. All going well, I'll be back on the road tomorrow. But we're going to figure out a way for me to sign Ed's stock, so if you leave your dedication notes with him, I'll do what I can.
