I am really sorry that you won't be coming to Toronto this June. Is there
any chance that it may change at the last minute? I am just hoping ...

I won't be at the Toronto meeting.
The NASA bureaucracy has second-guessed the travel bureaucracy at JPL.
Six weeks after JPL approved my travel to the Toronto meeting, NASA HQ
says I can't go. One wonders why anybody at JPL has budget authority in
the first place.
JPL had purchased a nonrefundable airline ticket for me, which included
travel to Santander, Spain, for the IFIP WG 2.5 meeting. If I don't
re-use it before March 22 of next year, JPL (and the American taxpayer)
are out $2296.70. If I do use it, the fee is only $200 more. This is
how Congress and NASA save taxpayers' money.
They also screwed me because I had bought a nonrefundable airline ticket
for my wife to meet me in Spain. NASA HQ didn't offer to reimburse me
to the tune of $1198.20.
I have one dinky paper about editorial issues, which I'll be putting on
the server for /edit to ponder.
Dan will need to serve as head of delegation, or appoint somebody else.
There won't be any duties for the treasurer.
