... we're looking for speakers for March, let me know if you'd like to perform a talk :)

I'd like to give the presentation I'd originally planned for January in March, if that works: building and debugging native Ruby extensions.  It'll probably be on the longer / non-n00b side but should be pretty informative.  I will almost certainly not be attending on February as son #2 is due on the 20th :)

Apologies for the late reply, i'll put you down for March, are you able to give me a name for your talk please as well as the amount of time you'll need to talk.
