We don't know yet.  I've asked for the schedules.  As soon as I have them,
I'll forward them here.  Watch this space.

We usually start setting up in the usual corner.  I can ask if any rooms are
free if you just want to make sure stuff is working.  Might not be one of the
rooms you want though, but if it's just to test stuff...

I admit to being largely ignorant about encoding etc.  If someone (fluendo?)
wants to ship us a couple of pizzas to do it, we can put them with in the
flightcase-rack we have for our network gear.  Shipping details will need to
be sorted out PDQ and you'll probably also want to test the machines to make
sure DHL or whoever didn't do anything nasty to them.

Where you get them is up to you, I can help you put them somewhere though. :)
