good job, mark. plan is a 4-letter word; congratulations on your  

opendns has cache tools on their site; it could be that they just  
don't update from dyndns that often and you could kick-start the  
update yourself. just a stab in the dark there.

i'm interested in the sciworks thing, too. i have a yearly pass and  
take the kids with relative frequency. where would this happen - in  
the lunch room? on the patio outside?

if the timing works out and you'd like another presenter (or even just  
an assistant), feel free to ask (and suggest a topic if you like).
