Atlanta bound

Alright folkses, thedigitalghost & I are heading up to Atlanta sometime in the AM. We're going to see the Atlanta Bucks play a rugby match, visit for a bit with our good friends six10steve, xtex, and belmontx, and hang out in L5P I'm sure at some point. So basically we're going to spend the majority of the day there cavorting with our heathen friends and such. If you're going to be out & about tomorrow, or if you want to come to the rugby match &/or hang out afterward somewhere, then reply here and let's figure something out.
