      The link to the logistics of the workshop seems not to work properly.  Could you please update it so that I can find the hotel info?

      I received the email to begin the user registration process for the ERPsim, but had problems with my password. When I went back in, it told me the link had already been used. I sent a screen shot yesterday to the email address I was told when having problems, but haven't heard back. I'm concerned about wasting time on Monday trying to get set up.Any other   suggestions other than "wait"?
