Very classy. Making mistakes happen, trying to fix them doesn't always follow.

Hm, I think I would have interpreted it exactly how you meant it. I guess it would depend on tone and what you said next. If you said it sarcastically -- which I can't imagine you doing -- then it could be easily misconstrued... Some people are unfortunately overly sensitive.

Andy, as always your humble nature is even present in this post.  You did a great job and I hope I can speak for everyone there that we all appreciate what you do.  I remember that point in the presentation and I would hope others know you were just joking and showing your appreciation for an engaged audience.  Keep up the great work.

I thought you did a nice job recovering from your initial response, but I also thought it was more humorous than offensive. You did a very good job presenting the material and interacting with the audience - it was fun and engaging.

I was in that session and remember thinking that it wasn't really a question, it seemed to be more of a challenge to your design. I thought you handled it very well, not offensive at all! And the presentation was excellent.

Your presentation on parallel execution was excellent. Any chance you will post the demo scripts and queries used?
