[CeBIT] We won't have net!

Latest news from the CeBIT booth of the Debian project: We won't have net access. There must have been some kind of missunderstanding; I knew we wouldn't have any fast connection, but I thought we would have at least something! Makes it difficult to show what Debian is realy about: A living, vibrant community, where everyone can participate. Makes it entirely impossible to try to find the answer to questions visitors ask where you don't know the answer yet.

BTW: I don't have any net access at my accomodation, too. So these blog entries are some kind of futile. But last year, when I spend the whole CeBIT at our booth, blogging kept me from getting insane (more than usual). So I might continue writing down stuff.

But hey! That's not that bad! So you know that I got online, when I flood planet. You might even hope, that I read some of my e-mails...

[CeBIT] Note to myself:

Next time we do some kind of special DVD (e.g. multiboot with updated kernel and some backports), we should start working on it sooner.

PS: Yes, I know. I said it every time I was involved and Ganneff said it everytime he was involved, too. But this time we mean it!

Coming home...

from the DebianEdu gathering at Erkelenz. If you don't know where that Erkelenz is: It's in Germany. Sort of. To explain it with unförmchens words: You travel to the west until the big abyss, and after you dropped down you still need to drive 20km ;)

However it was a nice meeting, while a teacher and several scholars served us with bread, pizza, drinks, power, net and everything else we need (I'm really impressed by the work of the local volunteers! A big THANKS! to Erek-Dingsbumms!) we did some work for DebConf, CeBIT, in the wiki, partly for DebianEdu, oh, and of course we made a lot of jokes about you-probably-don't-know-who ;)

You-probably-don't-know-who is sometimes a bit difficult. He can really get on your nerves, but on the other hand, he does things were you just can't stop laughing, so it's more or less okay. Speaking of that: He found a cool method to find his way in semi known territory: If you don't know where you need to go, just drive in increasing bigger circles and sooner or later you'll get to the point. This algorithm terminates even, if your start and your end poinst are on the same plane. Luckily for you-probably-don't-know-who that's the case on every pair of two points on earth's surface...

Even better for him: From time to time he has a navigational assistance system, in form of a female human sitting on his passenger seat...
