Ehrm, no: "This domain has been registered for a 123-reg customer".
Perl event dates should be kept at and 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.
