Perfect Programming?

Simply observing an exercise cannot serve as validation for inclusion into a program. I guess what I am trying to say is that there should be some method to the madness.

Hey Glenn,
Things have been going well. The conference was a huge success based on the positive feedback that we got from everyone. We will be having another one next year and have already started planning. How is everything going for you? Anything new in your world?
