Dossy,

Maybe it is time to re-examine your priorities ;) If it helps to ensure 
your attendance, we will all sing "Happy Birthday" to you if you decide 
to attend RubyConf. What could be a better birthday gift? Besides, I bet 
Matrix 3 will be playing in Austin that weekend too ;)

Hope you and many others will decide to attend. I've been fortunate 
enough to make it to both of the first two and am very much looking 
forward to this year's conference...
