I probably can't do it tomorrow unless it is way late my time as that
is when I fly to Toronto. I also am booked out the rest of today
through 5 hours from now so that is out too. :/ Thursday might work if
we do it afternoon over here/evening for you, but you say you might
not have a ton of time. If things do go wrong I will probably be
around enough people that can help out at least.

Maybe we can shoot for some day next week.
