Arrived back at home from LinuxDays.lu (this time without any problems with the car). I kind of liked that event. I had never so much fun at an event with so few stress ;)
During the afternoon of the last day, we had indeed some interesting visitors. A professor with his daughter / student / wife / whatever, which was nice talking about the progress of Free Software made during the last years, and about studying (of computer science) in Luxembourg and it's neighbor countries.
Only one visitor was a really pain in my neck. He complained about the Debian book Peter Ganten wrote. Telling me, Mr. Ganten forgot to mention two "really important prerequisite when installing over NFS". First I told him I didn't read the book myself and couldn't told him anything about installing Debian over NFS. But he still complained about this "stupid mistake" Mr. Ganten made. I asked him, if he has sent a bug report. He negated and started again to complain. He was like a broken record, telling me again and again "How someone can make a so stupid mistake?" This question can really get on your nerves if you hear it for more than half an hour. I tried nearly everything from asking for details about that books bug, too changing the topic at all, to finding an excuse to leave him all one (which is really difficult on an event with nearly no visitors). However: I survived, and I think my ears survived, too. I'm not sure if he survived: I met him again a couple of hours later, and he started again his complains. But I can't remember, what I did, but I didn't s him again...

got a car. Yes, during the social event yesterday I won a small remote controlled racing car for the third place. A (bad) picture of me and my price is available in my gallery. After the race, we went to a nice restaurant. I'm still not sure, if it was French, Italian or Luxembourgian. Nevertheless it was a nice evening.
Just took a look in the nice Donation-box, Seppy created. Yesterday we got 38 €. Amazing, that nearly covers the shipping costs for the posters, flyers and DVDs we got from Credativ.
Second day of the LinuxDays.lu and I still think, the number of visitors equals the number of exhibitors. Perhaps I should use the time, to finish my P&P, finish the next release of my tuxracer-extras package, start working on my last ITP. Or I just fake a blog entry, telling you after the lunch break our booth got overrun, and play a bit tourist ;)

Uploaded first pics to my gallery. Sorry, no time to tell you more, the social event is about to start :)
We were just visited by a school class. Cool they made a excursion to the LinuxDays.lu. When I was in school, we only made excursions to museums.
Yes Kurt, of course I told them about Skolelinux / Debian-Edu.
The ipv6 workshop ended, and there were indeed some visitors at our booth.. passing by to the cafeteria. Well, nevertheless one stopped at our booth and asked some questions.
