I try to certify all people I've met from face to face. So I had to certify a lot of gimp-developers. All of them are really nice people :-)
The meeting was very constructive. Gimp 2.0 will really rock!
I am desperately searching for people, who can help me at the Gimp booth at the biggest Linux fair in Europe, the LinuxTag in Stuttgart. I got some sponsors for our booth so I am most likely able to provide flight and room for one person from US or maybe two persons from Europe. The most urgent need is at the weekend (1st and 2nd July 2000). Our booth will have two or three computers, lots of wacom tablets and maybe a projector. Probably a lot of people want to learn something about Gimp :-)
If you are a Gimp Power-User or a Gimp-Developer please mail me, you could help me a lot.
I nearly talked the whole two days about Gimp. The local LUG had a booth with Gimp on a Xinerama three monitor display and two Wacom tablets. It was sometimes hard to find the mousepointer, but it worked... :-)
Met lots of other interesting people. Especially thanks to Bjørn Bürger and his WG for providing a place to sleep.
Last Weekend I visited the first Vintage Computer Festival Europe in Munich. It was a pretty cool event with lots of interesting old hardware. My favourites were:
It is some kind of frustrating, that my knowledge of old computers is really limited. At least I can now claim, that I wrote a program on the very first Commodore PET 2001 model - Yeah, right:
10 PRINT "ICH BIN EIN COMMODORE PET 2001! "; 20 GOTO 10
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
