Thanks for the commitment, and the healthy boundary setting.  Apology not needed.  Quite the contrary, I was hoping that we could start making YAPC's more sustainable.  That is, with a lot of low- to medium-level commitments like yours, we could avoid the huge-level commitments (punishments) heaped on those who stepped forward.  I'd like to avoid the "punish the volunteer" anti-pattern in group dynamics.
