Yah - the LPBN folks have always been helpful when I've worked with
them.  And it'd sure be nice to have you come in with all the
gear we need for a clear recording - I recall folks on IRC
saying last time that they had a hard time hearing.

However, and I may well be a bit foolish here, I don't really know
that we need to worry that much.  I find it hard to believe
that more than a few people will watch the streams live, and I think
we've got the bandwidth for that.  It would probably be prudent
to see if we can get a mirror or two (anyone in Europe care
to volunteer?)

There will likely be gatherings outside the main room, but they'll
be informal, and not appropriate for filming (in fact, I'm hoping
the same is true of most of the 'main' topics - I'd rather have
fun  <grin>).
