Just thought I'd let you know that Matt Burrows has the best excuse for being late to join us on this network:

"My wife was ordered into bed rest by her doctor two weeks ago and then we had our baby 2 days early -- he was supposed to be born today (July 26) but we had a bit of an emergency Friday night and he was born Saturday morning. We get discharged tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to get myself up on the site tomorrow night or Wednesday night."

I thought you might like to know and send congrats! It's mburrows@scetv.org -- until he has a free minute...
