	If I hadn't just signed up for an NSF parallel programming workshop (and
	I had sufficient warning to grab what my boss considers a cheap flight)
	I would loved to have attended. We are just now installing an 8-box
	32-core-Opteron Solaris cluster and plan to use SGE, and I have not used
	it before. I also have (through another grant) seven Dell PowerEdgeSC
	servers with Red Hat 4E which I am supposed to carry to seven
	UnderGraduate Institutions in Arkansas. Students at each UGI will be
	able to use this box to access our grid (among other things). I expect
	to launch with ten active users, and we may add another twenty in the
	next year - not much clusterin' 'round these parts, and this will be the
	first resource available for quite a few. (Including me!)
	If you are interested in holding the same event again, you might
	consider UALR! http://www.ualr.edu/ (We - the bioinformatics program -
	are required to spend a certain few thousand per year on workshops; we
	might be able to sponsor it outright. I'm just spit-ballin' here; I
	would need to bring it to my boss. However, he enjoys not having to be
	the champion for the event, so the first passionate offer usually gets
	accepted. :)
	I haven't really even looked Sun training, so I have no idea what they
	offer. Are you working for Sun now? (It seems like I know your name from
	Bioperl.) (Were you at Stanford in 2001?)
	Anyway, good luck with the training, and contact me if you are
	interested in doing that down here.

	This is a commercial announcement for which I apologize in advance.  
	I'm still trying to prove to myself and others that there is at least 
	a little bit of demand out there for Grid Engine training that is 
	centered around user, usage and application integration rather than 
	just a strict administration focus.
	The first open-enrollment seminar test was done back in October 2005 
	and went well so it's time to see if it can be reproduced. The 
	seminar model is the same as last time -- a very small group of 
	attendees meeting in comfortable surroundings for a 1-day meeting.
	The course announcement is here:
	A brief overview of what we are trying to accomplish:
	>> Intended Audience:
	>> -------------------------------------------
	>> Anyone interested in a user-centric view of distributed computing 
	>> with Grid Engine. Note: this is not an advanced operator/admin 
	>> course.
	>> Our goal is to help users, application integrators and developers 
	>> understand Grid Engine features and capabilities in a way that 
	>> allows them to become more productive at home. New SGE cluster 
	>> operators or administrators also may benefit from the user and 
	>> usage-centric perspective.
	>> The seminar will be taught with a life science informatics focus, 
	>> using bioinformatics workflows and applications as examples. As 
	>> Grid Engine usage and configuration patterns can differ 
	>> significantly between disciplines and industries, interested non-
	>> life-science attendees should contact us in advance to determine 
	>> if this seminar will be a good fit.
