We were short of time. The audience comprised the 8 member teaching staff of the Computer Science Dept. and students who were waiting for the prize distribution that was scheduled after the event. And there were exactly six teams that registered for the event who automatically qualified for the finals.

Even after all this, I would say the quiz was a success, if not a great one. I've done quizzes before, but this is the first time that I spoke properly, and didn't make any of those factual errors that lead to fights between the quizmaster and the participants after the quiz. The PHP script I wrote for the quiz(using DBX) worked without a hitch (yay!) and Kapil and Shantanu were perfect at the scores and computer. It was the first time I conducted a speed round in a quiz and I was surprised I didn't stutter or stammer!
