The 20th is the second/last day of BOSC.  I was thinking about including Piper
in the BOSC coding party, so that's why I mentioned that day.  Are BioPython
and BioCORBA being coded on both days or on different days?  Does each project
get one or two time-slots for coding?  I suppose I could ask someone
coordinating BOSC, but you're immediately available ;-)

You're right, having computers would be a problem for any other time.  But it
would be fun if we could pull it off.

The other thing that I have to contend with at the conference is a
mini-conference for Bioinformatics.org.  We're inviting several speakers to
talk about open-access publications.  We currently have someone from BioMed
Central and the American Library Association coming, and we could get someone
from the Public Library of Science.  It'll be called "BiO BoF 2001", and it is
currently unannounced.  But stay tuned for it.
