Hi Pythonistas!

So we decided to send stickers everyone who tweeted @pycoders last week about stickers. Those of you who are listed here can reply to this email with your name, address and twitter handle. We will get them out to you as soon as possible.

Sorry to those of you who didn't make it, but if you want a sticker send us a self addressed stamped envelope to:

44 Byward Market Square, Suite 210 Ottawa, Ontario Canada K1P 7A2

We weren't satisfied with the stickers we recieved and we have sent them to another printer and should be sent out by next week's issue.
