kthakore found out because I urged him to put in for a talk because he's
working on some really interesting stuff and I knew the deadline was
approaching. Talk or no talk, I hope he'll consider Startup Row.
Speaking of deadlines, I've just turned my attention from another one
to this one and I'm finding that http://act.yapcna.org/2012/newtalk is
giving "504 Gateway Time-out nginx/1.0.9" and has been for a while.
This is making me nervous.
Can someone kick the machine?

> This is why. This, here, this is precisely why. kthakore only just found out *today* where to submit a talk. If you're not familiar with his work, he pretty much singlehandedly turned the SDL project around from stagnation into awesomeness. I would certainly (and did!*) accept a talk he submitted to YAPC. With such a stringent deadline you're going to be missing submissions from people like him. ... and also schwern, from the sound of it.
