Awesome, thanks, Neville!

Yes, that works too and actually a lot of the writers do this.  Whatever 
works best for anyone's schedule is fine; the main requirement is having 
the beat done for Monday 17:00 UTC or thereabouts.

That's never a problem.  Everyone usually has some time away from FWN 
for a number of reasons.

Yes, coverage of the Marketing FAD would be really excellent.  I plan to 
participate remotely to the extent that is possible for that as well.

You are the winner, Neville -- thanks so much for your enthusiasm!  I'll 
send you some info off-list on more particulars.
