For those of us who can't do this (stay online for the next 24  
hours) :), what time is the conference: 3:30 GMT or 11:30 EST?   
Actually what I really want to know is whether it is at 11:30  
Minneapolis time or 10:30 Minneapolis time (just in case you have  
problems converting from Minneapolis to Rochester time zones).
