Thanks for your kind thoughts and suggestions, Jacinta and Scott. But this 
was planned to be a free talk, so thank you, but I won't accept any money :)

The fact that the tutorials that were supposed to pay some of my travel 
expenses didn't come through doesn't discourage me. I'll be giving some 
15+ various mod_perl talks this summer (mostly free), so it's not like I 
won't have any other opportunity to improve my presentation skills :)

That could work :)
