I think this could very well be what we do at the Database Forum as a 
cool follow-up to the BAARF Musical we did last year, Mladen.

We expect to announce the first brews from Miracle Breweries at the DBF, 
too, at an open-air concert. Talked to a ZZ Top copy band, in fact. And 
with James Morle's new outfit Scaleable Music (I kid you not) which owns 
amps with an output of 12,500 Watt, several very BIG speakers of the 
TurboSound variety, and then this DanNiallMladen play, we just might be 
able to entertain a crowd for a few minutes.

Will you help write it, please?
