For what it's worth, I checked the course Web site.  It still says
the talk was then and there - despite that time slot being reserved
for a ME course (I forget the number, but it was "Technology In
National Security").  You might want to point this out to whoever
put it on the mailing list you got it from in the first place: they
may think it happened, and need to know about this disconnect.
