* From the T10 Reflector (t10 at, posted by:

I've just posted the draft agenda for Tuesday's ADI working group meeting.
It's reproduced as text-only below.

QLogic is trying to arrange for a speaker phone and may also be able to
arrange a conference number to call.  Lee Jesionowski would be dialing in.
Michael Banther will not be able to attend, but if he can call in then we
can move his agenda items to the top of the list, as it will be late
afternoon in the UK.

When I have a final word on the dial-in, I'll send e-mail to the reflector.
