We tried to offer classes in Santa Clara, CA (and may do so again), but 
didn't have sufficient demand to run them.  There were 2 people that had 
expressed interest in that class.  However, I will say that in 2006 that 
was the only class we canceled (keep in mind though, that we run courses 
at our headquarters *regardless* of the number of students enrolled - 
it's our policy to not cancel classes here...) 

On another note, I will say that we're doing well enough to support the 
project through SPI...
