I hope I will get to DebConf7. I have applied for sponsorship (I haven't added
yet the IBAN and bank data) and I will require a sponsorship from my employer,
so I hope I'll get there somehow. (To be honest, I am a little concerned about
the integrity of the machine after a flight from EDI to BUH, but we'll see.)

I am wondering if shipping the machine wouldn't be safer (and maybe cheaper).
If there isn't too much hassle, could you see how much would it cost to ship
to Bucharest, Romania and tell me?
