XMPP Summit - 2019-01-18

    I thought we were removing the key signing stuff from the wiki page? It still seems to be there, so I'll remove that now while adding show-and-tells.

  2. Guus

    You wanted it off the agenda. Doesn't need to stop people from organising something on the side.

  3. Guus

    But, as theres there's little interest, it doesn't matter anyway.

  4. Remko

    Guus: I'm a bit surprised to hear you can still pick up sim cards here in Belgium. AFAIK, it's legally required to have an identity check (I don't know if passports are ok). I know some supermarkets got fined 2 years ago for still allowing it without identity card.

  5. Guus

    Remko: according to the article that I linked, identity checks are mandatory, but a password suffices.

  6. Guus

    apart from that: I know nothing. This was forwarded to me by a guy I know in Antwerp.

  7. Remko

    Then i climb back into my cave in silence

  8. Guus

    Remko: according to the article that I linked, identity checks are mandatory, but a passport suffices.

  9. Kev

    No need for silence, it's the cave that's important.

  10. Remko

    Guus: some quick googling seems to say that a passport should be ok.

  11. Guus

    Remko so in theory, it's possible. I wonder if any supermarket actually bothered to train people to do an ID-check. Might have been economically more viable to stop selling sims...

  12. Guus

    yey for EU roaming.

  13. Guus

    I wonder if I can buy them in the Netherlands, and bring them over.

  14. Remko

    Yeah. But there are plenty of mobile shops from the big providers, so i bet you can get a card there anyway.

  15. Remko

    Guus: one of the concerns was that you can still get the cards without checks in other countries anyway. Are the netherlands such a country?

  16. Guus

    Remko: from a quick google: yes.

  17. Seve/SouL

    Denmark as well

  18. Remko

    Guus: with a bit of luck, your data is cheaper with your dutch prepaid card in Belgium than it is with a prepaid one you get here.

  19. Guus

    Unsure, I never looked into prepaid cards. https://www.prepaidsimkaart.net/ lists some Dutch prices, but I'm not sure if they're competitive.

    in germany you cam buy prepaid sims in every supermarket, but have to show your ID by video chat or go to the next post office (PostIdent)
