I’ve been down to Les Suites and booked extra space for three BSDCan people.
I’m just now booking a room for a speaker who did not respond with travel details in a timely fashion. I’m not pointing fingers or blaming… but when the conference organizer asks you to provide information that is vital to your travel/accommodation, it is pretty much on your own head to do this promptly. :) I also found out that he has not yet bought his plane ticket. These are the things that add to my stress level. :)
I just process an email from asking about his registration confirmation. Yes, I’ve been late on them. But in this case, I sent out the confirmation before he asked. It bounced like this:

I replied to him… but I’m not sure he’ll get it until he empties his inbox…
