These two look the most interesting, to my eye. I don't know how many
IBM Z Series users we have on the list, so I worry that that topic may
be a shade too esoteric for the bulk of COLUG's membership. But maybe
I'm wrong, and everyone but me is living it up on mainframes!

An hour for one of these presentations would leave an hour for open
discussion, or a number of quickie-style presentations. Brians' SFTP
script would be a good candidate for the latter. Can we get a couple
more brave souls to step up for 5 or 10 minutes?

Quick presentations need not focus on a completed solution. Asking for
input on half-baked ideas is often as stimulating as a thorough
how-to! :)
