Well LWE ended up being a cool show to go to. Not because of the show itself but because of the people that went there. Most of the GNOME hackers were here which was pretty cool.

On Wednseday there was a gnome party at some local club. The day started out with a headache, so I had to go pop some aspirin to survive the party. Aspirin and vast amounts of beer kill headaches easily. Somebody at eazel thought it would be a good idea to book a suite for people to stay in after the party in case they were too drunk to drive. rebecka had an excellent idea of abusing this room for an after party. Thus after the club closed, a large contingent of gnome hackers invaded the suite. The party ranged from maciej's strange sexual encounters to "You must drrrrink comrrrade!".

The next day I missed my booth duty slot, but I've been there before and even pretended to staff the gnome booth for a bit as well.

On friday we took Ian to some steakhouse which was good, but turned out to be about $70 per person which quite sucked.

Besides all the fun and meeting interesting people, the conference was a really good pr for gnome. And not just pr. We are becoming a standard unix desktop and we are getting a new free software office suite.
