      Hi Al, I don’t see your name on the list as of this AM, so you probably didn’t get the email I sent out. You don’t technically have to be registered to attend, so no worries there.

      Go to this website for login information http://ucla.academia.edu/MattJans/CHIS-Data-Analysis-Webinar. Specifically look at the Adobe Webinar Login and Audio and Adobe System Check files to make sure things work on your PC.

      Someone just told me that they can’t view some of those files so they are also on SkyDrive via the link below


      Hope to see you tomorrow!
