  99. Kev Mail forthcoming?
  100. Steffen Larsen but any code for getting discount?
  101. Steffen Larsen it seems like the same prices tough..
  102. dwd Not yet; that's just the offer Florian has.
  103. dwd Steffen Larsen, The weekday rate isn't reduced; the weekend rate is (from €125)
  104. Steffen Larsen okie
  105. Steffen Larsen great dave. So there will be mailed a code etc.?
  106. Steffen Larsen because I need to book soon
  107. dwd I *entirely* sympathise.
  108. intosi We all do.
  109. dwd And FWIW, I'm like to get this done and dusted by the end of today; Florian's on it.
  110. ralphm has left
  111. Steffen Larsen dwd: right on!
  112. dwd And when I say "by the end of the day", I mean in a few minutes, thanks to Florian. :-)
  113. Steffen Larsen ha ha
  114. Steffen Larsen great
  115. Steffen Larsen He seems busy at the moment! :-)
  116. Ash has left
  117. dwd looks at travel
  118. Steffen Larsen when do you guys arrive? wedensday evening or thurday morning?
  119. Kev Wednesday evening for me.
  120. Steffen Larsen yeah I was thinking the same
  121. Kev And then I'm heading off Sunday.
  122. Steffen Larsen otherwise I had to get up early at thurday…
  123. emcho has left
  124. emcho has joined
  125. dwd I'm considering flying in on Thursday morning. Saves me a hotel night.
  126. dwd Though the plane won't land until 10:10, so I'll be late.
  127. Steffen Larsen dwd: yes true, save a night at hotel, but give me a headache
  128. Lloyd Arriving Thursday morning, flying out Monday afternoon
  129. Kev I don't want the stress of trying to arrive on time on Thursday.
  130. dwd Lloyd, Yes, that kind of thing. You flying from Cardiff?
  131. Steffen Larsen Ok. So maybe we could start at 10 oclock thurdays instead of 9
  132. Lloyd Actually flying up from Munich, we have a buddycloud hackathon in the Alps for a few days before the summit.
  133. dwd Steffen Larsen, I think our official start is actually 10:00 anyway, isn't it?
  134. Lloyd dwd you can get 6:40am flights from Bristol direct
  135. Steffen Larsen dwd: ok, I thought we said 9
  136. Steffen Larsen ok then I might take the morning flight
  137. Steffen Larsen let me browse a bit
  138. dwd Lloyd, Ah, OK. Though it's only 0600 from CWL, and gets me four flights onto my frequent flyer.
  139. dwd Lloyd, I don't *think* I can drive CWL->Bristol in 40 minutes. :-)
  140. Lloyd dwd: Cardiff -> Bristol ~45 minutes. Either longer in the Car or the air. Plus they've increased Wales tax again.
  141. Steffen Larsen I cant remember.. how far is the hotel from the airport?
  142. Steffen Larsen or do people come to diegem directly from the airport
  143. dwd Steffen Larsen, The hotel? A reasonable way. But Cisco Diegem is right next to the airport, I think.
  144. dwd Steffen Larsen, https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Cisco+Systems+Belgium,+De+Kleetlaan,+Diegem,+Belgium&hl=en&ll=50.888795,4.469805&spn=0.076019,0.070295&sll=50.887008,4.468174&sspn=0.152043,0.140591&oq=Cisco+Systems+Belgium,+De&t=h&hq=Cisco+Systems+Belgium,+De+Kleetlaan,&hnear=Diegem+Machelen,+Flemish+Brabant,+Flanders,+Belgium&z=14
  145. Lloyd Steffen Larsen: Ensure you don't turn up with only 50 euro notes, grumpiest taxi drivers in the world.
  146. dwd Any idea how much a taxi from the airport to Cisco is?
  147. Lloyd dwd: I think I paid 14 euro last time, but that was with a detour to get change and I was too tired to argue
  148. Steffen Larsen its about 4km away
  149. Steffen Larsen try über. :-)
  150. Steffen Larsen google says 3.9 km
  151. dwd Steffen Larsen, I'm told they don't operate there.
  152. Steffen Larsen but the address for cisco is: Cisco Systems Belgium, De Kleetlaan, Diegem, Belgium . Right?
  153. dwd De Kleetlaan 6/B, 1831, Belgium
  154. Steffen Larsen okie perfect. I'll put it in the wiki if its not there
  155. Steffen Larsen so people can find it.
  156. Steffen Larsen Can I write that we start 10 o'clock as well?
  157. dwd I believe we have the room from 0900. Ralph mentioned 0900 for 1000 start; but I'm hesitant to call that definitive; it's really up to Kev.
  158. Steffen Larsen ok
  159. Kev dwd: The room's been sorted now?
  160. Steffen Larsen for cisco, yes I think
  161. dwd I... thought so.
  162. Kev Excellent.
  163. Kev When do we have the room until in the evening?
  164. dwd Though I can't recall seeing that it had been, just that it definitely would be. Perhaps I should check...
  165. dwd This I do not know.
  166. Kev That seems potentially useful information for time planning.
  167. Steffen Larsen :-)
  168. Kev I'd have thought that gathering at 9 but starting in earnest at 10 on Thursday and 9 on Friday would be sensible enough.
  169. Steffen Larsen Kev: yes
  170. Kev I don't think starting later than 10 would be sensible - we'll spend the morning not getting anywhere anyway, with introductions and schedule and stuff.
  171. Kev So we'll have to behead anyone who arrives late :)
  172. intosi puts guillotine on list of items to pack, and needs to check if a big enough van can be rented.
  173. Kev Thanks.
  174. Ash has joined
  175. fippo kev: oh, you're planning for a meeting longer than 15 minutes?
  176. Kev I don't think there's any way to avoid it :)
  177. fsteinel has joined
  178. dwd fippo, On a busy day, he'll stretch to almost half an hour, you know.

  185. Kev We're missing a day for the dinner still, aren't we?
  186. dwd I was assuming Saturday.
  187. Steffen Larsen Kev: Friday or Saturday
  188. Kev Saturday would be ideal.
  189. Kev Friday would also be fine.
  190. Kev I'm just trying to arrange what else I need to do while I'm there.
  191. Steffen Larsen +1
  192. Kev Thursday would be inconvenient :)
  193. Steffen Larsen yes. Then we can only drink orange juice ;-)
  194. Lloyd Thursday is good for those not staying for FOSDEM, Friday is better for me :)
  195. Steffen Larsen Lloyd: true
  196. Kev There are people not turning up until Friday, too, so swings and roundaboutns.
  197. Kev s/typo/notypo/
  198. Steffen Larsen Kev: your the chief in command. Choose a date, and people will show up. :-)
  199. Kev That isn't true for the meal.
  200. Kev I think I got nominated to 'chair' the meetings during the summit days, but I certainly don't have responsibility for logistics of the meal or anything (which is sitting with Florian, I think).
  201. dwd Friday is the FOSDEM beer thing, so wouldn't work.
  202. Steffen Larsen so saturday for the dinner might be best
  203. dwd And as far as responsibility goes, that's probably resting with Ralph, though I'm trying to shoulder some of it.
  204. Steffen Larsen good idea

  218. ralphm dwd: I've been (and still am) travelling today
  219. ralphm dwd: I thought we had already settled dinner for Saturday and gave this suggestion to Florian?
  220. dwd ralphm, That seems likely.
  221. intosi If you didn't say anything, he will most likely assume it's going to be Saturday anyway.
  222. ralphm didn't we have saturday for years already?
  223. dwd ralphm, I'm pretty sure that we agreed Saturday, and asked Florian to work on that.
  224. dwd ralphm, We changed day in, erm, 2012.
  225. dwd I think.
  226. ralphm dwd: no http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/index.php?title=Summit_11
  227. ralphm I think I researched this last year, too
  228. Lloyd Wasn't it Thursday last year? I may be wrong, my brain was, erm, not performing at 100%
  229. intosi It was.
  230. intosi (on Thursday, cannot judge how well your brain was functioning)
  231. ralphm I would not necessarily be opposed
  232. ralphm I think there was something with the venue not being open on certain nights
  233. ralphm In 2011 it was on Sunday
  234. ralphm so hmm, maybe we don't have a default
  235. dwd So on 2012, we changed day to Saturday.
  236. ralphm http://logs.xmpp.org/xsf/140108/#20:59:29
  237. dwd Oh, yes.
