not at the moment.  joao heard this question at the podium, and i've
touched on it since then, and there doesn't seem to be any reason (yet)
to assume that the answer won't be posted to soon.

i believe it's called "jet lag".

i don't think so.  no bank in its right mind, for example, would allow its
identity to be held or represented by a middleman whose security policies
weren't auditable.  on the other hand, joao heard this question at the
podium and i don't think it's time yet to declare USC "late" answering it.

isc depends on a lot of volunteers, i'm happy to hear of your availability
and i assume that joao will also be happy to hear it when he catches up on
