    Then don't sell things. You don't have to.

    Quick info for running a booth:

    First get:

      1. One table
      2. One chair
      3. A connected power cable
      4. One machine with monitor
      5. Get a banner or a poster
      6. Get two people to staff the booth
      7. Be around at least one hour befor it opens
      8. Be prepared for stupid questions and a lot of talking

    IP connectivity is optional, get more people and space if possible,
    table cloths always look nicer than a naked table, running X and
    something impressive is helpful, don't forget your power splitter

    Two people should be considered minimum staff so one person can leave
    the booth for a moment.



    This is Linux Country.  On a quiet night, you can hear Windows reboot.
