Hi, everybody - MJ here. We're at the POSitouch conference - about to start our awards dinner. I have with me here Jared Isaacman, CEO of Shift4. Jared how's it going today. It's great. It's been a great conference. Yes, it has. We had some exciting news yesterday -- a lot of new developments. What's been your favorite part of the conference so far. Favorite part of the conference -- well so far - favorite part of the conference -- well I think first has been almost universal feedback from all the attendees and dealers that it's just a -- it's more exciting conference and it's a different venue. There's, just a lot of change but all good change. So the general vibe I guess has been very positive - In terms of like specific things that I thought were most exciting - I don't know we really had a lot of good ones. The Lighthouse Marketplace is a pretty good one and obviously we we unveiled the new POS product offering which is pretty cool so there was a number of good ones here. Yeah yesterday there was a lot of buzz about what the big announcement was going to be so that was exciting -- and what would you say is one take away that you hope everyone is bringing back with them. I think the number one take away - that I hope everyone is going home with right now is that this --this strategy that we had as we when we went out and an acquired you know a number of companies in 2017 was much more about payments. Because up til now, everybody is just hearing about the POSi Payment story, which is really important and it is transformative to really everybody's strategy as you go out in the market, but there was so much more thought than that - and I think this is the first time really that our value dealers had an opportunity to really see that. That there's, a real tech strategy here. A way that we're going to be able to go out and win for like 10 years in the future, that yeah payments is a big part of it, but so are all these other important things. Right yeah - and I think everybody is geared up and excited and ready to go for the new year so thank you so much and looking forward to a great dinner, Thanks. Thanks for your time. Thanks.
