Ehrm, no: "This domain has been registered for a 123-reg customer".
Perl event dates should be kept at perl.org and yapceurope.org and
such. Since I'm doing booths at Fosdem and other open source
conferences, I'm collecting dates like this a bit more active that
other people... I'm just mad like that.

I think the organising people know that. Organising things can be
difficult enough. Some people, like Andrew Shitov, Laurent Boivin
and Mark Keating, they do it like it is making a cheese
sandwich. For me, organising an event with speakers, it is hell and
it takes me forever. So kudos to the organisers, and take your time,
make it a nice one, and tell everybody about it, and maybe we all will come.
