2004-07-12 Samir does matter

  Back to Dijon after a week in Bordeaux for the LSM. Here is a short summary of the trip. My pictures are available in my gallery.

  Monday

Travel by train from Dijon to Paris, then by car to Bordeaux. I shared Guillaume's car with Dams and Houpla while Nanar and Erwan travelled with Anne. We discovered some usefull stuff (maybe dangerous) during a break on the highway. After dropping everything in the rooms and buying some stuff to drink later, we went to the city to find a place to eat. After looking for a cool place for quite some time, we found a place which looked nice. Food was good but the guy looked drunk and started telling us some jokes (mostly about Samir). We ended drinking some beers on the grass behind the building.

  Tuesday

We had to wake up early to set up the booths before 9, however conferences started only in the afternoon so we got really few visitors before lunch. We went to the supermaket and then had a picnic in the cafeteria (and we did the same the 3 following days). At the end of the afternoon, Mandrakesoft employees and foreign contributors arrived and we had dinner together. Like the days before, we ended on the grass.

  Wednesday

This was the first day of the first Cooker Meeting. On the morning Michael gave us an overview of the current quality checking tools, then we discussed organization problems.

At the end of the afternoon, happened the aperitif of associations. Everyone had brought stuff to eat or drink from her place. Then, after parking the car we went to a nice restaurant in the center of Bordeaux.

  Thursday

In the cooker room, Frederic Lepied listed us what is planned for Mandrakelinux 10.1, Dams presented Libconf and Buchan presented DKMS and we discussed how we could use it.

At the end of the afternoon, we moved to a really nice exposition about "Le chat" from Gelluck. While going there we could notice that the replacement bus didn't work better than the tramway.

We then went back to Talence for the Repas du libre but there were already too much people so we sit in the grass.

  Friday

Later

  Saturday

On saturday morning we only went to the ENSEIRB to clean up the booth and say goodbye (at least for me, as everyone had already been there when I arrived). We went shooping and then went to the sea, at Arcachon.

There, we had picnic on the beach, drinking nice wine without a glass. We made pictures of Guillaume for next PLF calendar. Then during the nap, Dams and Erwan made a sand PLF logo. Some children who where impressed by the penguin, asked us to also photograpgy their sculpture.

Anne didn't want to swim, and she didn't like having her foot smashed, so I made a picture to store it in the list of place where not to go that we'll start with the restaurant of monday.

After a few hours, we decided to try finding a domain to visit (hopefully with some wine tasting). After some time visiting empty places with closed buildings we went to the supermarket, bought some good wine and drunk it in the park where the Diner du libre had occured. After saying hello to the ducks, we had dinner in an Indian restaurant and went to sleep immediatly, everybody being tired.

  Sunday

  Today

Now I'm really tired but have some packages late (Alexandria 0.3.1, XChat 2.0.10, XMule 1.8.3, ...) and still a lot of emails to read.
