Actually started to suggest Oslo in my original post (as opposed to 
somewhere else in the Netherlands) but did not want to presume on your 

Post-XML Europe and in Oslo works for me. Through the weekend as well so 
Kal won't lose too many billable hours. Although I have heard there are 
people who generate those over the weekend as well. :-)

Appreciate your assistance on making it possible for me to be present 
for the RM dicussions. My problem is that so few (numbers 1 at present) 
people have Bible and markup related meetings that planners rarely 
coordinate them. ;-) For example, the SBL International meeting this 
summer will be in Netherlands and I will be flying directly to Montreal 
to make the Extreme Conference. (SBL conference ends on 28th of July.)

BTW, I like Kal's suggestions in general but don't have anything 
specific to suggest. The directives do encourage that sort of thing, 
teleconferences, etc., so it might be a fruitful avenue to consider.

Hope you are having a great day!
