Aw, bless :)

That was my first real talk in front of a room full of people and I have
to say it didn't bother me at all.

What *did* bother me was the to-ing and fro-ing towards the end as a  
bunch of people from the other room wandered in interrupted quite an
interesting exchange on the merits of memcache.

Also, I spent one of the other talks preparing slides for a lightning  
I thought I was supposed to give but then ended up not being required.
Sorry Marcus :)
