Last day of GUADEC 6

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

Today is the last day of GUADEC 6 — and I believe everyone here had a great time (I know I have).

Tomorrow is the first day of the big two-day German photo excursion. I believe Tuomas (tigert) and Tor (Gimp/Win32 guy) can both attend for most of the day (before their evening flights). I think we’re planning on driving to Neuschwanstein and other points around the area. It could be different, but I think that’s probably one of the best things to do. There were also a lot of other great suggestions from a previous post of mine and we may do some of that tomorrow. If not, then I’ll go visit some of those places on Thursday.

Please note that if anyone else at GUADEC will be here after the conference and is interested in taking pictures, there’s still an oppurtunity to go on the trip(s). Please contact me asap (in person would be best; a comment on my blog could work too). Thanks!

S5, a nice web-based presentation solution

Hubert, your problems with OOo Impress prompt me to point to something I use for presentations: It’s called S5 — a nice web-standards-based presentation system under the Creative Commons by-sa 2.0 license.

Germany photo trip

Sunday, May 29th, 2005

I’m thinking of traveling around Germany a bit, to take pictures. Is anyone interested going to be in the Stuttgart area for a couple days (Wednesday and Thursday) after GUADEC?

Also, if anyone has any suggestions where I should go to take awesome pictures in Germany, please leave a comment.

In Stuttgart

Sunday, May 29th, 2005

I’m happy to report that I’m here in Stuttgart and there is some limited form of ‘Net access (at the building where GUADEC is being held).

Time for GUADEC!

Friday, May 27th, 2005

I’m off to Deutschland for GUADEC, the GNOME User and Developer European Conference.

My flight is today… and tomorrow. Gotta love transatlantic travel.

Update: I just found a nice city guide @ for those going to GUADEC. It has all sorts of (what seem to be) useful links to everything around the city of Stuttgart.

Here are a few photos from Drumlin Farm, an organic farm which happens to be part of the Mass Audubon network. Make sure to see all of the photos.
