Agreed, and the ability of the organizers to do this gets more
impressive every year.  But that does make me think: everything in the
world is going up in price except YAPC.  Maybe the $100 price is
getting to be a bit arbitrary at this point.  I know I wouldn't mind
if the price went up a few dollars in order to ensure the best
possible conference or take some pressure off the organizers.  I
wouldn't even mind if it just went up 4% or so every year to keep up
with inflation on the price of coffee and air conditioning.

Just something to think about for future conferences.  And to all the
hard-working penny pinchers who kept the price so low the last few
years: respect.
