That would be interesting, but I was kinda hoping we'd finalize some 
demos on video creation.  I'm decidedly *not* the guy to lead that but 
hope we can do that one of these nights.  Or even have a hackfest where 
we try to troubleshoot the coaster-making and folks bring their boxes in.

WATIR scripts and Ruby would be neat to see though...
