Norm, I assume you are planning to do one more pass before
COB this Wednesday (I hope to send this in late Wed or
early Thursday).  Please note these dates.

Norm, is there already a URL for this?  Will you be able
to generate this by COB Wednesday?

How are we doing toward getting a CR call for the end
of this week?
