[yapc] A word of caution

Okay, so I grew up in a small town of 1,217 people (I could probably
even name everyone off).  I've lived/worked in Houston, but only
wandered around the galleria area late, LATE at night, so I haven't
spent much time in the "bad parts" of cities.  If you guys are trying to
scare me, it's not going to work.  I've rented several Steven Seagal
movies and Chuck Norris has a ranch near College Station (where I live),
so I'm getting prepared. ;-)

Yes, this is the case.  The one problem with this year's YAPC is that  
it's not one where we're going to be hanging out in the neighborhood  
at night.
