I should add that even if the developer's room at FOSDEM is for free,
it does not provide the atmosphere to do real work. And, the other
presentations disctract from work.

This brings up the question who is providing which machinery for

* I can provide some handhelds ("gimmicks")

For the brochures, I have approx. 150 left over from last year.
