[ApacheCon] MIKE IS BACK!

Oh god, what a surprise! I arrived this morning at our preliminary booth at ApacheCon, to find, that alphascorpii left a nice surprise for us there, when she picked our exhibitor passes up yesterday:

Notice the
mike poster on the wall!

Yes, there is a Mike poster to be seen in the background. No, it is not the one, that got stolen with all the other hardware all the other hardware stuff from last CeBIT. No, alphascorpii made a brand new one, just from the bad quality jpg on Joeys infodrom... Thanks very much!

Uhm... after reading what she was getting through to bring it here, I love her more, than I did ;)
