I was mostly absent for the last weeks.

Still valid.

I only got feedback from Olaf and Bas, who would both have been willing
to give talks, as well as Marcus and Neal might have been willing, too.
However, the deadline for registration of the devrooms passed on
2007-11-26.  I didn't register, did someone else?

Why didn't I register?  I simply missed the deadline.

Why did I miss the deadline?  Because for me it was quite disappointing
that nobody of all the other people to which this email of mine was sent
to, took the half of a minute to say something like: ``Yes, I'm not (yet
sure if I'm) going to give a talk, but I like the idea, please try to
register a room.'' or whatever.

If we want to achieve something as banal as registering a devroom, it's
not only me who has to get active to register the room, but it's also the
whole community to back this up.  This has been missing mostly.
