Including the ones from Paris, excluding the ones I'm renting for other
people in the organization, there will be 6 (IRILL) + 8 (rental) + 1
(rental, probably, not confirmed) + 2 (mine) - 3 (two infodesk laptops,
one for lightning talks), for a grand total of 14.

We need two per room (a DVswitch/camera capture laptop, a twinpact
grabber laptop), so that leaves 10 spare.

Unless you think I'm miscalculating something.

The volume of a pizza of thickness a and radius z can be described by
