Ditto to what Todd said! I got the same letter last week and had the
same feelings. Todd, you may remember last year around this time the
same subject came up and was discussed on this list. I'm sure it's to
take advantage of the fact we're meeting this week in Orlando. The topic
in fact has been discussed here and will be addressed by the NASUG. I
for one want to keep the name the same and have the others find a
descriptive name for themselves.
