Sorry that I missed the meeting. Getting a video driver working with
Plan 9 can be a challenge. Video support for newer cards often means 
to write the driver yourself. :) Fortunately, most video cards supported
by Plan 9 are inexpensive. Other times it is just a matter of compiling a
new kernel (< 20 seconds) with the right video driver. 

I wouldn't mind giving a presentation on Plan 9, but not soon. I've
started a working group to develop a Plan 9 demo for an open source
expo. Once we get a demo funded and running, I'll present the work at 
a TLUG meeting. :)
