Glad to see you came in and added lots of stuff to your profile, Sandy! Sad to see that you haven't been to an NCDD conference yet, though. What would it take to get you to join us in Austin for the 2008 conference? It's October 3-5. I'd love to see you there this time - and have you present a workshop if you're interested.
