Hello All,

I have updated the SLO Bytes web site;  adding Second Session presentations on a table located at  I drew the information from past editions of HardCopy.  You will notice that several months contain no presenter while in other instances, the same presenter appears in two consecutive months.  This happened when the presenter that was scheduled for one month moved the presentation to another month.  Notice too that I don't have a last name for the person who presented for Staples.  If you help me correct any of the information, please send me those corrections.

The notes from the presentations do not appear on Second Session page.  However, there is a link to Presenter Notes at the top and bottom of the page.  That link takes you to

As always, I welcome your suggestions on how to improve the information and how it is presented.
