GNOME Beer Event at FOSDEM

Tuesday, January 27, 2009 21:37 - GNOME

Much happened in January, well enough to consider any GNOME problem with the appropriate distance, that's probably a good thing.

FOSDEM is around the corner, and there is the traditional Beer Event on Friday, I don't think I ever went to them, and it will certainly again be the case this year. But this is a first, as I will also miss you on Saturday, I won't be there for the GNOME Beer Event (many friends turn 30 this year, that particular one is already reaching 40) but I encourage you all to go there, just like year, nice place, good people. Olivier organised it all.

Starting at 19h30. La Porte Noire. 67, rue des Alexiens.

FOSDEM 2009 GNOME Beer Event

GNOME Beer (and other beverages) Event

Good thing this picture doesn't spot the date, as I could copy it from last year announce (btw I fail to remember who did it). Hopefully there will be instructions at the GNOME booth about how to get there and there are many nice places to eat in the neighbourhood, a list of them could also be made.

As I'll be missing on both Friday and Saturday evenings, when should I buy you a beer? You decide! Just yell at me in the GNOME devroom and we will check if the bar within the university works as well as in previous years.

Also, two other GNOME FOSDEM thanks: Christophe who planned the devroom, and will man it perfectly during the day, and Baptiste who managed both the stickers and t-shirts (register for yours).

Finally just like Thomas did, I'd like to remind you of, your best way to the metacity blog and the commit digests.

As discussed on the FOSDEM mailling list, we should consider asking our fellow Gnome smokers no to smoke during this event. We can't ask the other clients not to, but we certainly can ask our people for a little bit of consideration for non-smokers. As far as I can tell, the air in that bar was barely breathable last year :(

This is of course temporary until the Belges get a working government to make this law hehe

There is a non smoking room at the back of that pub...

Anyway, I'll have to find another pub to spend the night with my friends... Do not want to be taken as a GNOME guy.

You miss a government to design stupid laws ? I give you the french one, free of charge.

I know this blog entry is a little old, but it seems as good a place as any.

I follow the syndicated feed for news.g.o, but the gnome-devel-announce entries come across as one big blob of text, no linebreaks or indentation. They show up fine on the site itself, but they're pretty much unreadable in syndication.

Any way you (or Jeff) could see about fixing that? It would a great way to keep up to date otherwise!
