Good morning Jerry,
I just thought I'd send a quick note saying a HUGE THANK YOU for the great job you did last night. The students loved it, all the feedback was very positive, the administration was extremely pleased and I learned a lot about how far Linux has come in the last 5-10 years.

I know a Polo shirt and a Big Mac (even super-sized) dont nearly come close to expressing our appreciation, but I will be singing praises and blessings to generations of your unborn offspring! :)

Thank you again
