Toby Dunn posted the following on this silly Friday OT thread:

Toby, got that. But, an even better suggestion came from the ever clever; ever sly Nat Wooding, offline, who posited:
"Easy choice: put the omelet between two slices of bread."
So that this thread has at least some SAS value: I will be "sandwiched" between two GREAT SAS conferences this November:
WUSS 2010: http://www.wuss.org/currentconference.html
SCSUG 2010: http://www.scsug.org/
... and hope to catch up with as many SAS-L-ers as possible at each venue. Check out both of these conferences; they are going to offer great opportunities for learning the latest SAS programming techniques, tips, and tricks!
Best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
