The scariest part of this conversation is we might convince Tom to sue 
us all for the slave labor working conditions he's been under. :^)

Seriously, I agree with Dinu.  We have produced a successful event. 
Why?  Because someone fronted the money (Denis), a small group of people 
did a lot of work, and a larger group of people did their share.  Since 
I'm definately not in the top ten, the least I can do is give a round of 
applause to those that are.

I'm glad Nicolas said what he did.  It means he's proud of his effort 
(as he should be), and that there is a team-oriented spirit.

At the same time, this exception can be caught and handled. :^)  The 
brochure isn't a travesty.  Anything broken can be fixed by giving 
credit in the opening remarks.

Personally, I'll buy a beer for everyone involved, as long as Denis 
gives me his charge card. :^)
