[yapc] WTF?

I'm a little surprised to find myself on the mailing list, two months 
after I signed up to the list and attempted to register.

Only recently has enough information been readily available from the 
website to find all the answers to my employer to even begin trying to 
get this YAPC covered as a business trip.

And with three days left to register for housing.

I'm not sure exactly what happened to the overall process here, but this 
is not the same experience last time Chicago hosted YAPC or other cities 
that I have attended.  It was much better in the past.

And yes, I can complain and outright bitch about this because right now 
I'm pretty certain I won't be able to make it to this convention in part 
to the lack of time available to organize.  Instead I'm trying to get 
someone else to go, if possible, who shall remain anonymous.

To put it simply, for whatever reason(s), this year it's been a pretty 
poor registration process and in the future I'll be much less trusting 
fo the organizers to get their act together in a timely manner.
