    Your countdown timer says there's some 4,000 days until this.

    Otherwise, this looks incredibly interesting and useful.

    Whenever awesome stuff like this is going on it makes me wish I could just teleport myself to that location. No expensive plane tickets or entrance fees. It sucks to live over-seas sometimes.

    We're having company, and I'm afraid I'll miss the last bit of the session. I've never done this before; will I be able to watch what I've missed at a later date?
