Suggestion: you (and everyone else who's ever in your position at a Large
Networking Conference) should *run a netops blog, and make sure it's well
publicized in the week leading up to the conference -- and at registration*.
Or, even, run a Twitter account to which people can subscribe from their
cellphones via SMS, on which you announce problems and fixes.
Communications, *way* ahead of the curve, ameliorates the impact of this
sort of problems remarkably.
