  37. Simon dwd: do you mean "we'd like to extend our thanks to Corp for their sponsorship of the XSF. This will help promote open federated communicaton… " type announcement or?

  46. dwd Simon, I was thinking a less formal, "&Yet [or whoever] have kindly offered €1,000 toward the XSF Dinner". But whatever.

  49. Simon Indeed. Always nice to tell sponsors about the good things that their money will do for them (besides affording me my McDonalds :)

  51. intosi Will we need to choose from the menu before the event again?
  52. dwd intosi, That level of logistics is down to FLorian, who seems very oevrworked at the moment.
  53. Simon Too many Taxis?
  54. Lloyd "Its not a taxi, its an executive transport service" - Florian when mentioning taxis
  55. Simon remembers the SF taxi driver describing himself as a "transport engineer". Given his driving, he was more like particle physicist trying to smash atoms.
  56. Simon Are developers also allowed to use über or can only "executives" ?
  57. dwd Executive Developers are.

  61. Steffen Larsen It got some fair price last time in london, with some good discount.
  62. Steffen Larsen :-)
  63. intosi has joined
  64. Simon I read that the über drivers in Paris have to be delayed by 15 mins to avoid "unfair" competition with the ,kca
  65. Simon local drivers.
  66. Steffen Larsen ha ha

  68. Steffen Larsen isn't it a free market there?
  69. Simon Guess France has a different view on free markets…
  70. Steffen Larsen ;-)
  71. Steffen Larsen well we have a special law here as well for taxies.. And I dont think über can easily enter here as well.
  72. Simon Funny thing is that all the Munich (regular) drivers already use an über equivalent for arranging pickups (and drive around doing normal pickups too).
  73. ralphm Steffen Larsen: let me know where there are true free markets for taxis
  74. Steffen Larsen he he
  75. Simon Where's here?
  76. Steffen Larsen Copenhagen
  77. Steffen Larsen well Denmark
  78. ralphm I think it is regulated everywhere
  79. Steffen Larsen ralphm: true.. that was my point.. a bit of irony

  87. dwd On phone to Domicilium.
  88. dwd They just say to send a mail to helpdesk@domicilium.com. Which doesn't sound hopeful.
  89. Simon begin spamming…. NOW!
  90. dwd No, best not. I'll try a different approach.
  91. Simon Did you try ping that guy on LinkedIn?
  92. dwd Simon, He's a 3rd-level contact, I'll see if I can edge closer first. :-)
  93. emcho has joined
  94. ralphm Ever since I started at Rackspace I've been spoiled by Fanatical Support. I suppose Domicilium doesn't have it?
  95. Laura has left
  96. dwd I think you misspelt that.
  97. dwd It's "Fanatical Support™", isn't it?
  98. Simon Chatted with James Body - "https://www.linkedin.com/pub/phil-adcock/7/86/436 is definitely the guy you want" try him on phil.adcock@domecill….im
  99. Simon Found his e-mail: padcock@domicilium.com Twitter @philipadcock
  100. dwd Ah, good.
  101. ralphm dwd: probably. In any case, you start expecting it from every service company, is my experience. Not sure if that's a blessing or a curse.

  120. dwd Thanks.
  121. Kev Is that the sort of stuff we should be publicly archiving?
  122. emcho has left
  123. dwd Kev, You're normally the one arguing things should be publicly archived. :-)
  124. Kev Not people's phone numbers.
  125. dwd That's the main switchboard number.
  126. Kev Ah, OK.
