No.  It's at least 50% my fault and my responsibility since I have
overloaded you.  You don't need to take full responsibility for that
failure.  We'll do better next time.  I hope you've had a lot of fun

You could call me at any time during the show, you know? :)

Good question.  I was phoned by the moderator one hour late.  If I
would have been informed in time, I could have rushed in and give
the talk on my own.  Without slides and stuff but with a good
explanation why you couldn't make it so nobody would lose ones face.
