Where the f** is my badge ?!

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

This is a public announcement: I hold Johan Dahlin’s badge as an hostage until i get my badge back. I heard he’s the one responsible for this masquarade, so I now is time for revenge. Whoever has my badge can try to reach me in UPC’s hall or in the Telepathy talk 🙂

Note to Davyd: Where are you ? Are you hiding from me ?

Guadec, or is it GUADEC?

Sunday, June 25th, 2006


All these posts about Guadec are boring, here is one more !

The travel went smoothly, with planes on time. I met bkor, arturo, alejandro, and a bunch of other people i can’t remember the name at Barcelona, took the train (packed with St. Joan-party people). Of course there were very few taxis at that time, so i couldn’t make it to the party, but some other people never found the party too. I guess the whole town was the party.. Or some kind of Beirut under fire with all those fireworks and people screaming and running around.

First day was relax, got up late, took a bike ride to the university under a shiny sun. Met a nice bunch of people there too, it’s really nice to put a face on the IRC nicks or hackergotchis (which are completely out-of-date for most people, including me)

The night ended up in a little bar with a TV, with all the gnome-hackers to see the end of the Argentina-Mexico match. I’ll try to take some pictures when i have the chance.

One last thing: All the cool people have a 770, i feel old-school and depressed. Donations accepted.

Telepathy, cohoba

Just before the guadec kick-off Telepathy released a whole lot of cool stuff. Check it out.

You might also want to check the cohoba screenshots, i’m hoping to get it into good shape during this guadec along as “prettifying” it

Can you smell the Web 2.0 hype now ?

Guadec Foobar

Guadec is starting soon, I’ll be landing at Barcelona at 21:05. For those interested, the ride in train to the GNOME village from the airport is described on this guadec page.

Sadly enough, there are no busses after 21:00 that go from the Vilanova Station to the GNOME Village (i don’t know the exact distance but it seems long to do by foot).

But there is still hope, and you can be part of it ! <crowd noise>

Quim Gil suggested the following. Since there is this Saint-John’s Night party (Fri, Jun 23 20:00 – Fri, Jun 23 23:00 according to the guadec schedule on google calendar) which takes place just 5 min away from the Vilanova train station, if I can find anyone who has a car, or some sort of transportation device with a trunk, there at the beach, to put my luggages while attending, i’d be saved !

Bonus point if a car can drive me back to the GNOME Village after the party.

Maybe this little arrangement can profit other people too, I see on the arrival times page that there are quite a lot of people arriving that night.

You can either contact me via the comments, the email (raphael slinckx net) or IRC (kikidonk).

Thanks !
