Thanks, Jay, for the kind words and getting this topic started. I go
into a mini-hibernation/decompression after the show's over and have
been lax in posting follow-up info. We do have quite a few picture
galleries and walk-through videos coming in, which I have posted here:
Unfortunately, a few of them are Facebook galleries that aren't set to
"Public" permissions, so those not on FB can't see them. I need to
remind the posters to fix that.
The brief wrap-up is that the show went great, attendance was up, the

handshakes (minus the one I caught this cold from...Purell at the
table next year) and thanks make it worthwhile.
