    Oh, yeah. That's the stupid WP driver that thinks it knows about bounding
    boxes. Either force gv to A4 format (next to the magn. button) or edit the
    BoundingBox values at the very end of the .ps. That's not needed for printing
    however; printers seem to ignore the BBox entirely.

    If you want gv to default to anything else than BBox, have something like
    GV.pageMedia: A4
    in your ~/.gv

    I've also done some hacking; turned out to be quite simple. There's a new
    version of debian-logo-horizontal.eps at
    and you can get a .ps of it in any format with something like
      poster -v -m a4 -p a4 -c 0% -w +0.5,0.5cm infile.eps >
    Change both "a4"s to the format you want. ps2pdf will get you .pdf if you
    need that.

    I currently have the intention to be there at 14:00, but if I have to wait for
    three hours for anyone to show up, I don't know if I'll stick to that.
