As the people who actually do have time say Berlin is fine, plus Babe
is booking his flights right now, I guess one could say "Alea iacta
est".

Dates: July 14-20 (umm, whenever you want, basically)

Location: My place, address available on request by mail

Accomodation: If more than Hansi, Kris and Babe want to come, please
bring some kind of mattress and sleeping bag with you.

Cultural programme: To be discussed

D2 playing: Possible, but not mandatory

Other games: I know that Kris and Hansi are quite fond of board and
card games, and they have a huge stack of them at home, so we might be
able to talk them into bringing some of them.

Next meeting: Probably in September

Addition for all interested Germans:
There is currently a summer tariff available if you want to travel by
train:
http://www.bahn.de/pv/view/angebote/sparen/sommer_spezial.shtml

All the way through Germany for 29 Euro, but you can't change the
chosen trains once you have booked. And you should book a week in
advance if you want to actually have a chance to book the connections
you want.

As Martin Luther-King once said, "Some people look at things and say
'why?' I look at things that never were and say 'why not?'"...

I can bring a sleeping bag, if needed!

A perfect opportunity for me to learn a bit of German ;)

Does that mean my laptop would be welcome?

I thought that was attributed to Robert F. Kennedy as quoted by his brother
Edward at his eulogy.

Actually I learned this sentence by
*turns ashamed mode on*
listening to Michael Jackson's HIStory album, the worst of them all...

I only heard the speech, and always thought that was MLK... never
checked, though.

So you might pretty well be right on that

Ashamed mode?????? I should be ashamed. I was incorrect. This doesnt
happen to me. Ever. I am always right, ask my friends, family co-workers....
It was John F Kennedy during his innaugural address that the quote is
attributed to.
