    I just wanted to drop a quick note to ESNUG readers to wish you a happy
 Thanksgiving and to hope your family gatherings go well.  I'm heading off
 to a very small town in Vermont to see my folks.  And even though I
 originally said I'm going to write-up my 6-Months-After-DAC'97 DAC Review
 over Thanksgiving, I've decided to put off writing it until the Tuesday
 *after* Thanksgiving.  (I just want to spend more time with my folks than
 with a computer over Turkey Day break.  In addition, the e-mails I recieved
 for this review have been quite an eye opener for me.  Whoa!  These
 insights taken 6 months afterwards have been, ...well...,  pretty damn
 insightful!  -- and it's gunna be a hell of a lot of work compiling them.)

    ANYWAY, why I'm saying all this isn't to get permission to be with my
 folks over Thanksgiving (not hardly!) but to tell those last minute survey
 responders that they now have until the Monday night after Thanksgiving to
 share their views/insights/opinions for the "DAC'97 & Afterwards Review."

    God bless, and I hope your holiday goes well.
