    And don't forget that we need apt-get available via sudo on some
    machines to show the people how apt-get works. ;)

    Well, since I'll arrive on Friday morning, I'll think I directly go to
    the office first. (I don't really want to miss the social event. ;)

    Aehm, I didn't meant visitors, but female developers, which there are
    currently not very much working on debian.

    I'll planned to be sometimes at the booth and help me bit, if that's
    needed or some people like it. But the rest of the time, I want to visit
    some lectures and visit other booths to inform myself. :)
