I really need your help on this, the deadline is fast approaching. If
the content is OK, what email addresses can I use for the co-submission?
Thanks in advance,

I hate to bug you guys, but have you had a chance to put any more

(I'll need your email addresses on the JavaOne submission site; I
would also advise a bio update that only you guys can do on your end).
