Hey Laurence - thanks for putting your bio up. Sorry I hadn't gotten to it yet! Looks good. Brassratgirl 16:46, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome, and no problem. I like the template system you have setup here for it. GreenReaper 20:46, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Proceedings

Hey Laurence. Thanks for uploading the text of your paper. Just to note that I've reset the edit status from 'Done' (where you had set it) to 'Editing': the edit statuses have clearly defined meanings (see Proceedings:Guidelines for contributors) and your text needs to briefly work its way through the editing process yet. Also, I've nixed the PDF you'd uploaded (though thanks for trying to be helpful!): we'll be producing PDFs of each paper in a clear house style as part of the editing process with a view to future print publication, so we've tried to discourage people from uploading their own. --Nick Boalch 22:34, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Sure thing - good luck with the editing. :-)
I've also uploaded a smaller (size-wize) version of the slides PDF. Hopefully that'll help those still on modems, and it also seems to scroll better in the browser (perhaps the text is done as text rather than images or something - I don't know enough about PDF to say, but it is one third the size).

Excellent, thanks for that. I'm using OpenOffice's built-in PDF converter, which I'm not sure is always the most economical in terms of file sizes. --Nick Boalch 22:58, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
