Good/bad/good/good news

Good news: the XML 2006 web site was far more popular than we anticipated.

Bad news: the site was so popular during the conference that we exceeded our bandwidth limit and went off line.

Good news: the site didn’t go down until two days after the conference was finished.

More good news: the site is back up now.

Apologies to everyone for the inconvenience. In a couple of weeks, we’ll be putting the proceedings online, and I’ll watch bandwidth closely in case we get linked to from somewhere popular. Maybe next year we should use Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instead of conventional shared hosting.

Now, hurry up and get your proposals in for XTech 2007, because the deadline is only four days away (if you liked Boston in December, you’ll love Paris in May).
