- For the love of heaven, turn off your cell phones. Yes, that includes you, conference speaker who has a lavalier microphone attached right to your breast pocket containing your vibrate-mode phone.
- Please check to make sure that your laptop actually talks to the projector before the actual moment that you're supposed to start speaking. This goes double for you if you're running linux, windows-on-a-mac, or any other unusual combination.
- It's unfortunate when you're a focus topic organizer who is supposed to chair a session, and you don't or can't make it to the meeting. It's worse when you're not there to chair the session, and one of your invited speakers doesn't show up either.
- I can't believe that it took me three days to realize that soda in the vending machine by the registration desk costs half as much as soda at the food concession.
