ix Incorrect Bio
Chris Houston's bio is incorrect:

It currently reads:
?When Chris is not head deep in technology, you can usually find him dancing modern jive at his local Rotary club, where he met his French financee, Marie, or no the ski slopes with a vin chaud.?

But should read:
?When Chris is not head deep in technology, you can usually find him dancing modern jive (where he met his French fianc?e, Marie), at his local Rotary club, or on the ski slopes with a vin chaud.?
