In case of a connection problem, you should bring a copy of your presentation in a CD-R or a USB memory stick, which can be used with our backup computers that have the PowerPoint on Windows and MacOSX. But please do NOT rely too much on our computers since they may not work properly for various reasons, such as the version inconsistency of PowerPoint.
