Another flipside to this is that in IT roles, because there is a high
demand for leave it is often quite difficult to get leave at this time
(January). That may be my particular IT support / sysadmin experience but
there was a squable over leave and coverage every December and January.
How much that affects LCA attendence is anyone's guess :)
