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...
