No worries, I'll try and bump into someone who can.

I was around Toorcamp if that jogs anyone's memory.  The only NB
person I'm aware of hacking with (if briefly) in person is Jacob, who
maybe might be in a mood to vouch for me?  (It's been awhile and our
interactions have been brief, so that's up to him.)  I probably met
some of the other folks but I'm not really sure who you all are yet
beyond usernames, (I'm hoping that changes) much less which faces
happen to be pony admins. :)

I tend to be more likely to be at NB on Thursdays or Fridays since
those are the weekdays I'm in SF (I live in two cities, it's
entertaining), Saturdays also work.  If anyone happens to be around
the space at the time, feel free to let me know so I can run into you.
 I'd be happy to make a point of being at the space at a certain time
if that would help.  Also I'll be at Toorcon next week if anyone else
is going.

However things work out.

My apologies!  That is now fixed.

Done.

As a sidenote, the flower tradition seems lovely, I haven't seen that
before.  I picked a flower I liked the look of off the garden of the
Internet.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I read that page a
few weeks ago and didn't remember its instructions.  My bad.
