Dear all,

Almost there ;)

Just one or two missed points before the event :

> Could someone bring hoarding, posters, banners ? - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Hoarding?highlight=%28HOARDING%29 -
I already know Francesco, Joerg and Xavier are going to do that.
Please could you confirm that ?
In addition, if you could be at the booth between 12:00 and 14:00 in
order to prepare it before the rush.
Thanks a lot for your great comprehension and you help.

> Could someone bring a demo PC ?
Even if a lot of ambassador are going to bring their laptop or
notebook, I think it could be interesting to bring a demo PC.
I know Marek have proposed to bring his one but it was not sure. Could
you confirm that ?
Thanks a lot in advance.

>As you probably know, we are going to have only one or two physical
network cable at our booth, so could someone bring a switch in order
to facilitate network at our booth ?
FYI, it should have wireless network anyway.
Thanks a lot.

For my part, I going to bring power distribution strips (as used in
Belgium: type C/E [1]) - [1]

Thanks a lot for your help and your comprehension.

FYI >>

A few details before everyone heads off to Brussels.

It seems like most rooms will be empty before 14:00 hence we don't
expect issues with that.
But still, devrooms are only available to you from 14:00 on on Saturday.

Rooms close at 19:00 *SHARP* on Saturday. Please understand that FOSDEM have
to do some cleaning, close the buildings with the security staff of ULB,
etc.. on Saturday evening. So I'd ask you to kindly throw everyone out
at 19:00 (or before).

On Sunday, we start at 09:00 and close at 18:00 (same goes as for
Saturday). We'll try to follow the schedule you've sent us as closely as
possible in terms of opening + closing the rooms but please bare with us
if we're a few minutes late (or come bug us at the Infodesk).

Don't leave the rooms unattended!
If everyone is to leave the room then please poke us at one of the
Infodesks _first_ so we can close the room.

If you need anything or if there's an issue of any sorts, please head to
one of the Infodesks (one at the main entrance in H and one at the
entrance in AW (*)) -- they're equipped with friendly FOSDEM staff ;)

(*) those are buildings on the Solbosch campus at ULB:

A video projector, a projection screen and an internet connection (WLAN
a/b + 1 wired at the speaker's desk) will be provided.

As a reminder, each stand is actually a table of 2m width and FOSDEM
Team provide
two seats per table as well as wireless (a+b) and wired (see above,
please bring along cables and switches). FOSDEM Team'll try to do our best on
wired but if you really, really need CAT5, better bring along an AP or
wifi router (we can only guarantee wifi).

FOSDEM TEAM'll stick A4 sheets with FEDORA project name on the tables
so you'll know
where to install your stuff. I can't tell you in which building which
project will be (FOSDEM'll have stands in H and AW this year) because
FOSDEM Team're
going to improvise that on Friday ;)

If you don't want to go around both hallways to see for yourself, poke
the friendly staff at the Infodesks, they'll have a list.

See you at the beer event ;)


Kind Regards
Have Fun with F9
