Who: Anybody who reads this
What: Chief Delphi Web Hug
When: Thursday, 12 Noon.
Where: Astrodome exit that leads toward the Reliant center.

Everybody that participates on the forums gathers around to meet, say hi, shake hands, talk, etc.

Look for the big Chief Delphi flag.

Oh, and I will not be at Houston this year, so don't look for me too much. :)

There will be some sort of hand-outs for certain statistics which I have yet to find. :)
The query I just ran actually broke mysql. I am unsure why it killed it, it was a simple query.

YES!

There will be 5 awards in the form of "Great made to put on your wall certificates" to the selected special catagories.

Who will get awards?????? You have to be there to get them. I am keeping the catagories a secret except for a few hints on the winners below:

All hints are seperate awards.

Hint #1.
Team contains a 8 & 3 & 4 in their number

Hint #2.
A food from the early 50's that GI's would eat

Hint #3.
A very "Wild Guy"

Hint #4
A team Chief Delphi mentored in the good ole days.

Hint # 5
Irish kid


I will make buttons if there is time. With the snow/ice storm school is closed and I do not have access to the machine. I will see what I can do.

Please pass on the word about the Web Hug.

Look at the announcement in the portal section of the opening page.

If you can't, I'll understand... The weather's pretty bad right now. I'll forgive you ;)
