We're probably about 90% through uploading videos. Of course, the last
bits to do are the more complex ones to handle, but I'm hoping to be
ready by the end of the week.

Unfortunately, we lost some talks. Some due to the fact that we were not
yet completely set up by the time talks started in the room, other
because for a reason that is not entirely clear to me yet, recording
stopped in some rooms on Sunday before all talks had been recorded. It
was not a disk space issue, since all recording laptops still had disk
available. It may have been operator error or misconfiguration on our
part. As a result, we won't be able to upload all talks, although the
damage luckily isn't too massive.

I'm afraid Janson was one of the rooms where recording stopped
unexpectedly. This happened sometime during the Apache Cassandra talk,
so the FreedomBox talk was not recorded.

My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience. If it's any solace, I
really wanted to see the FreedomBox talk myself, but was so busy
wrapping up in the other rooms during that time that I couldn't; so I
thought "oh well, I'll just watch the video afterwards"...

The volume of a pizza of thickness a and radius z can be described by
the following formula:
