When you go down, It cut in the middle of David Simcha's presentation. I'm using Firefox. On different computer, it cut at different location, but I can never see the whole list.

Bug: if I click on the "Sponsors" link, navigation bar changes from --- Schedule Registration Speakers Venue FAQ Contact Us --- to --- About Venue Schedule Speakers Talks Registration FAQ Contact Us --- Minor issues on "speakers" page: 1.

Fixed, thanks.
 Minor issues on "speakers" page:
 1. Dmitry Olshansky: space in "std. regex"

This seems to be caused by monospace (there's no whitespace there that I could find).
 2. Vladimir Panteleev: unknown characters (displayed as squares, I'll
 replace them with '?') in link "http://?forum.?dlang.?org"

That's odd, does anyone else see those? Andrei

So another important question. Do you know which talk will be recorded or not ? I have been asked the question quite a lot.

To the best of my recollection only Andrew Edwards asked for his talk to now be recorded. Andrei

I am pretty sure that you meant "... to _not_ be recorded." :) Ali

OK, did some investigation on this. It seems that some script explicitely set the height of element <div class="page_left equal hyphenate"> . This script sometime get the height wrong.

Heh... I was browsing with JS turned off, that's why I didn't see that problem. I'm pretty sure it will show up if I turned on JS, 'cos I configured my browser with very large minimum font sizes to make websites with bad CSS (i.e. microscopic fonts) tolerable -- not that dconf.org does that, but the font size override tends to throw off size calculations of a lot of JS out there. T -- Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

http://dconf.org/talks/gertzfield.html Gertzfield's bio is cut off. I see first line and only small upper part of second line. Debian 6.x Iceweaseal 17.0 (backport). No unusual settings in my browser and it usually works fine everywhere else. Very interesting talks. The presentation looks great and very professional. Nice job! --rt

That's what I see in sources of the page (again, replaced square with '?'): --- <a href="http://dlang.org/phobos/std_regex.html"> <tt>std.?regex</tt>ev </a> ---- Firefox sources: <a style="-moz-hyphens: auto;" href="http://dlang.org/phobos/std_regex.html"><tt style="-moz-hyphens: auto;">std.regex</tt></a> Chromium: <a href="http://dlang.org/phobos/std_regex.html"><tt>std.&#8203;regex</tt></a>
 2. Vladimir Panteleev: unknown characters (displayed as

Opera: <a href="http://forum.dlang.org">http://?forum.?dlang.?org</a> FF: <a style="-moz-hyphens: auto;" href="http://forum.dlang.org">http://forum.dlang.org</a>. Ch: <a href="http://forum.dlang.org">http://&#8203;forum.&#8203;dlang.&#8203;org</a>

Chromium and Firefox renders everything as expected, so it should be Opera-specific (bug ?).
