FAQ 1: I'm having trouble joining.
ANS 1: It's rare, but sometimes firewalls get in the way. For solutions, visit Citrix Firewalls

FAQ 2: Can I get a PDF copy of the slides?
ANS 2: Unlikely, but sometimes slide excerpts are made available. We protect the intellectual property of our guests.

FAQ 3: Why is the show called The DB2Night Show when the events are held during the day?
ANS 3: Like many late night TV Shows, recordings actually occur during the daytime with live studio audiences. How many of you would get out of bed at 11pm to watch DB2 on TV?

FAQ 4: The show recordings occur during US time zones. What about those of us in Europe and Australia?
ANS 4: Our challenge is finding show guests. Help us find guests that won't have to get out of bed at 2am and we will be happy to do studio audience live shows at peak European and Australian times.

FAQ 5: How do we become a sponsor of the show?
ANS 5: Email "db2nightshow" "at" "" for a prospectus.
