    Yes, Remko has such a thing I believe.

  21. Kev

    He'll be at the summit tomorrow.

  22. Simon

    thanks Kev. Will ping him

  23. Simon

    looks like Lloyd Watkin made some progress on the XEP last night too. https://twitter.com/lloydwatkin/status/428349135578595328

  55. intosi

    Indeed, it is.

  56. dwd

    I don't suppose anyone's heard from Florian, have they?

  57. intosi

    Not a single stanza.

  58. dwd


  59. Simon

    How long ago did you order the über?

  60. Simon

    sometimes it can take a little longer for them to turn up.

  61. dwd

    The problem is that on Monday, he said he's sort the menu and coach for Saturday night. But I've not heard from him since.

  62. dwd

    I've sent him a text or two, and tried calling.

  63. dwd

    That was bad typing. "He said he's sorting". In fact, would sort on Monday.

  64. Simon

    Nothing on his Twatter feed either.

  65. dwd

    I'd stress that I am entirely confident in his abilities and dedication to The Cause. But I'm quite nervous.

  66. Simon

    Is he at the Summit?

  67. dwd is somewhere between Reading and Paddington.

  68. dwd

    No... He said he'd booked a flight coming in on Friday evening.

  69. Simon

    I know he like his non-federated social networks: You could try twitter DMing him. /me goes to wash.

  70. dwd

    I'm tempted to call him from a different mobile number in case he's seriously in hiding. :-)

  71. dwd

    Simon, I don't know how.

  72. Tobias


  73. Simon

    Let me see if I have Twatter installed.

  74. Simon

    I'll ping him to ping you.

  75. Kev has joined

  76. dwd

    That'd be good.

  77. dwd

    Not that I have anything but total confidence in him, you understand.

  78. intosi

    We understand. It's the Deus ex Machina part you don't like.

  79. Simon

    Pinged. I'll let you know know if I see any movements online from him

  80. intosi

    Simon: ta

  81. dwd

    The only other alternative I can see is to contact the restaurant directly; I'd need to beg help from a Dutch-speaker for that I think. (Their website is in Dutch, at least).

  82. dwd

    And as for the coach, I assume that we could source one.

  83. intosi

    dwd: give him a while to see if he responds to the DM.

  84. intosi

    I'm sure one of the Dutch speaking guys in the XSF can make a few phone calls if need should arise (say, tonight.)

  85. dwd has left

  86. intosi

    Both ralphm and I are quite busy packing things for BRU.

  119. Lance

    hildjj I'm going to head downstairs and find some coffee. need a caffeine infusion for any hope of staying awake till a decent time

  120. hildjj

    fippo: no. but, CBOR.

  121. Lance

    fippo when do you arrive?

  122. hildjj

    Lance: i'm in a different hotel. but let me know when you're ready to go the other way.

  123. fippo

    hildjj: linuxwolf predicted that (-:

  124. fippo

    I'm waiting for Eurostar. Nobody else here yet as far as I know.

  128. Dave Cridland

    MattJ's on his way, though. I stop to look under every hat.

  129. hildjj

    Dave, were we supposed to meet you at St. Pancras?

  130. ralphm

    Hmm, Brussels has a large park near the University

  131. ralphm

    Maybe we should tag MattJ

  132. Simon

    dwd: rather than lifting everyone's hats, just look for a dad.

  133. Dave Cridland

    Ian's not coming.

  134. Simon

    That's it. I'm cancelling.

  135. Dave Cridland

    It has, I feel, rather spoilt the point.

  136. Dave Cridland

    There is someone who looks almost exactly like PSA here.

  137. Dave Cridland

    By which I mean, he's bald.

    Hello, I’d like to attend the summit this year, I’m not a member and it’s a bit late, but I hope it will be possible. :)

  169. stpeter

    bear: isn't there a summit@ room?

  170. stpeter

    Link Mauve: that shouldn't be a problem, we're flexible and not members-only for sure!

  171. Link Mauve


  172. stpeter

    however I need to log off right now, but I assume that bear can help you

  173. stpeter

    or ralphm

  174. stpeter

    I'll be back in ~30 minutes

  175. Link Mauve

    Thank you. :)

  176. stpeter

  211. stpeter

    Link Mauve: I'll need your real name (which might be Link Mauve I suppose) so that you can have a name badge to access the Cisco building

  212. Link Mauve

    Ah, I’m Emmanuel Gil Peyrot.

  213. stpeter

    ok :-)

  214. stpeter

    will you need / want Internet access?

  215. Link Mauve

    I have nothing against getting called Link Mauve IRL. ^^

  216. stpeter

    if so, let me know your email address (you can send it via PM if you prefer)

  217. Link Mauve

    I don’t *need* it, but it’d be nice during the time of the event. :)

  218. stpeter
