In an effort to be more cosmopolitan I have chucked some diced chorizo into my pot noodle.

I never had any of this trouble when I was an artificial insemination technician on an ant farm!

A nice read for first-time visitors, some circumstances might differ, like currently the weather is pretty warm temperature wise, but you never know how it might evolve... :)

Wondering if I should nip to the European Parliament On Friday while I'm in Brussels for the weekend and take a picture of the Union Jack then nip back again on Saturday to see if it's gone? 🤣 🇬🇧 🇪🇺

FOSDEM is empowered by its volunteers!
If you attend main tracks or lightning talks, we are still looking for people for the heralding task (announce the speaker, ensure the talk ends on-time) & video (pointing the camera in the right direction)

Plan your time. There's an app you can download which is essential as some things change and the app is live updated.
Make sure you visit the 'stands' they are not just in building K but other locations too.
Don't forget beer night:

Daughter had Doctor Who on last night and Charlie (Our dog) was fascinated by the Judoon language and sat staring at the screen on the few occasions they spoke it.

Oh, it's going to be one of those days is it?

1. Asked for a quote on a Server with 5 x 500GB SSD's (RAID 5) what did I get back? A Server with 1 x 1TB SATA drive.

2. Asked a supplier for some photos of a Grade B (I don't really like Grade B) HP Tablet. What do they do? Send the same flier I saw on Thursday. "I KNOW, I'VE SEEN IT, I WANT PHOTOS!"
