What we see is the tip of the iceberg.  In addition to running around 
fixing problems during this week where we can see them, the 
Alcatel-Lucent host staff, the paid staff, and community volunteers put 
in numerous hours in the dark corners and dark hours plus weeks of 
efforts to deploy the network and other facilities.  Amazing, and can't 
say thanks enough. 

An illustration of how focused these folks are:  when I asked the folks 
at the host table what they thought of the big shake-up at the top at 
Alcatel-Lucent, they said "what shake-up?"  I guess they were too busy 
to notice the headlines.

just wanted to add my voice to the positive side of the feedback.  I'm 
thrilled to walk in day one of each IETF knowing I can just open up my 
laptop and have instant-on service.
