A BBQ will cost some money, too. And not everybody has a short trip as you,
if we can make it easier for some people and pay for the hostel, it will
make it easier for some people to attend... maybe next time, if people are
still interested and when we have a little more time to prepare this.

Maybe not a bad idea, I wont have much time for that before the meeting
anyway. I think the disks are still fine, on my last try the installer
kernel did not have the drivers for the network and cdrom, I think. But the
disk in my efika seems to be broken. Our engineer already offered our
electronics lab, if we need to solder something, it should be all available.
