As I have been interviewing at a lot of places (and doing a lot of coding
assignments), I am so swamped this week. We hadn't set a time for the
"EXCELLENT, DUDE" document :)

I can put this off a few weeks, but I think it's something someone else may
want to run with.. we see interest.. this is group collaboration.. anyone
want to run with organizing a get together and see what synergy we can come
up with?
