So now I have this vivid image of this cool group of professional Jazz
musicians getting together and just jamming their hearts out. Knock, knock,
here's this middle-school band member with his uncle's saxaphone. That would
be me!

The way my schedule is now, Tuesdays don't work any more. Many Wednesdays
would work for me, but not Nov. 7.

What would I do at a Plone jam? Well, I guess I'd pull out my little Plone
book and start working on beginning stuff, because that's where I'm at. But
it would be real helpful to be able to ask questions of real people in real
time, provided they don't get too annoyed...
