That wasn't me. I forget who actually made that offer, so I have forwarded
this to thelist so whomever made the offer can add you to his distribution.

Hi Ron,
   My name is Asif and I am currently working on a
project for the University of Oregon. Since the web
servers and websites at the University are constantly
under the threat of getting hacked, I am very
interested in learning more about security issues.
Could you send me a copy of your presentation on
website database security?
