  1. But you are on deck in Dublin on Friday, right?

  2. It would have been good to meet you. We’ll have to make sure that the event is well documented… and it’ll be good to meet up with you in the future.

  3. Bernie – Uldis will present the paper… Daniel – a shame, but yes, we should meet soon; make sure you catch Uldis 🙂

  4. Wish I had gone too John.
    What a great line up.


  5. well John, you’ll just have to have an even better time at SemTech in a couple of weeks. 🙂
