ditto, adding of course that the NOC volunteers play a critical role 
matching local capabilities to inordinate demands of IETFers.  You folks 
understand our "use cases" as well as our "abuse cases" and there is no 
way any local operation, hotel or otherwise, can be prepared for what 
1300 overequipped geeks can do to a network, without the NOC volunteers 
to provide the reality check.

It's a tough crowd, and a challenging set of requirements.  This 
instance of The Network seemed to be one of the best ever.  No problems, 
no complaints.  Believe me, folks certainly notice when things are not 
working well, because we are utterly dependent on this network to get 
through the week, and making it to Friday without any significant issues 
or complaints is a top shelf achievement.

Almost as good as the international breakfast buffet at the Shangri-La.

Thanks again.
