Fred was that among the greatest times of our lives, or what?  I had a blast
up there.  Douglas Hofstadter was there, along with a bunch of others high
on my heroes list.  Many of the local hardcore types were there.  We showed
up three hours ahead, and the ~500 seats in the main hall at Stanford was
already mostly filled.  They set up a closed circuit TV for another ~1.5
kilogeek in a nearby hall.  It was AWESOME!  Afterwards I pulled off the
greatest April Fools gag in my life.  {8^D
