The only real problem...

...with having so many of our contributors here for OSCON is that we have to balance "going to talks and conference sessions to learn awesome things" with "hunkering down on the couches and tables in the hotel lobby and hacking on awesome things".

(Things that people are or have been hacking on this week: image hosting; HTML5/jQuery/responsive-design etc mobile page; "fuzzy" feed matching so there will be fewer duplicate feed accounts and allowing for a "did you mean?" suggestion when creating a feed; extra icon add-ons; the bookmarks/memories overhaul; HTML5, responsive-design site skin; "clean up ALLLLLL the tiny bugs!" (that would be me!); backend/site-reliability stuff; upgrading the code to run on Perl 5.14 ... I'm pretty sure I'm missing stuff, too. Heh.)

You need a time turner so that you can live several parallel lives at Oscon. (In my world Oscon is a type of low ESR capacitor!)

Sadly I think the rooms are too closely spaced and the conference center too small to avoid meeting yourself [ which is apparently bad. ]
