I'm down!  Perhaps I can even make another attempt at archiving the talk if
Arlen is open to that.

I have to confess I haven't made much progress if FreeCAD, though I've
gotten the impression from the video tutorials that OS X binary build is
sufficiently out-of-date as to not have all the critical UI features.  Has
anyone had any luck building from source on that platform?

Ted.
