I really think the next PDC needs to run for a full five days, rather than four, with more duplicate session in order to resolve lots of unfortunate session conflicts. As it is, Andy Sherwood and I are going to have to split some of them up so we get good coverage between us and we'll still miss some good ones. Hope they record all the session so we can catch the ones we miss as can all those who couldn't attend...
