Thanks to the German Bahn, I gained an hour offline in a train. All my tasks I could finish without the internet are done now, so I thought to myself I could as well blog something.
I squeezed myself into the ICE to Basel SBB with a incredibly heavy suitcase, a backpack, a cardboard roll holding posters and my handbag. A whole hour later than planned because of severe stupidness on my side. This turned out to be extra annoying when shortly before Siegburg the train stopped before a no longer working switch. We had to travel back nearly all the way to Cologne main station and slowly. Hence the gained hour.
I am on my way to attend the OpenExpo in Bern where I will give a presentation and back up Luca and Eckhart at the KDE booth. Claudia sent me the posters and some T-shirts and thanks to a quick reaction from Novell I now have 200 something openSUSE DVDs in my small suitcase. The latter gives me funny looks since a suitcase of that size is not expected to be heavy. Believe me – this one is!
I am looking forward to put on my KDE hat again and meet with all the nice Swiss FOSS folks in Bern tomorrow. But first I want food and a bed.
The initial train by the way actually never made it to Basel and my extra hour quickly evolved into one and a half hours but that’s another story.
