Streaming: Where are the Slides?

I was curious if it was possible to ask the excellent
videographers at the NANOG conference to re-enable the
slides over the Real Audio videostream. The slides
were visible yesterday, but today they are not. Much
of what the speakers say refer to the slides. More
importantly it's much more useful using the video
channel to see the slides than to seeing images of
the speaker. Thanks for anything that can be done
about this before the tutorials are over, and thanks
for the awesome streaming job. Video and audio has
been coming in great in Florida.

The slides are (almost) all available at the start of each talk in
PDF. Go to Select a talk
that is about to begin (or has begun) and a pointer to the slides is
at the end of the abstract.

I've been following like that, but it's not always obvious what slide is on the screen, particularly with the better speakers who talk around their slides rather than simply reading them out.

I liked the mix of slides, speaker and audience that were happening yesterday. It would be much better if the output from the podium laptop was mixed directly into the video capture device, though, rather than being projected onto a screen and then captured with a camera. The latter approach makes the slides illegible in many cases.
