Microsoft has heating in their facility afaik.

I disagree to this. It's just a financial and balance question. It is a
stretch to go to CA for some of us who need to stay in tight budgets.
We should also take into account that the NSF funding will probably run

I think it is unreasonable to expect that a majority of the Forum will
speak up via email (or even read this thread :-). It would be reasonable
to do statistical sampling. I heard 4 people against Atlanta and 0 in
favor so far. Speak up!

All the Best,
