You're right. You may be a crotchety nerd but you certainly aren't a
whiny one ;) It was Chris and Larry Anderson's wife who were complaining
about certain audio levels (System of a Down is best played loud ;)

One guy complained one year about having to pay for admission EACH DAY,
even though the website was pretty explicit about this. I went ahead and
gave him free admission to make him happy. I think next year the same guy
complained about the parking (when we did it at the San Jose Convention

At the last VCF, one old guy complained that the text on the speaker
schedule and site map card was too small to read. He had me there ;)
