I went to a BayLISA event at Yahoo a month or two back.

It happened the year before.

Egg on my face.

Not mentioning years in web pages is one of my pet peeves.  What, people who

my websurfing through archive.org's wayback machine where at least the
infrastructure tells you when the page was editted.
