The most amazing thing about this Usenix was that we were the ones in
ordinary clothes, by and large, if a bit more casual than the ordinary
conference going world, while the hotel was full of people who have never
roped a steer in their lives in cowboy costumes.

In other words, we were the mundanes at that hotel, Fanfare people were the
"fen."   Strange feeling.
