This is a final encouragement to submit a nomination for a 2000 SIGAda
award.  (See below.)  At present we have received less than 10 nominations,
and we think there are many worthy nominees out there.  Because I will be
out of town next week, the final date for nominations is extended to FRIDAY
next week, OCTOBER 20.   -hh
