Re: LinuxTag

I'm writing only one reply in order to make the thread easier to read.

So better expect/calculate with three meters.

I guess, it's also referred to as "Absperrband", that thing you can
purchase at thinkgeek which says "Caution!  Microsoft-free zone".

If it is something like HP DesignJet 650 or 750, check the papersize
settings on the console of the printer.  Before printing make sure to
set it to "the losest value" (don't ask me for the exact setting).
The reason is that (La)TeX calculates margins differently than the
printer, with the effect that you'd lose your right and lower end of
the poster if the printer would believe the setting in the .ps file.

Ask that question again no earlier than one week before the show.
Currently booth space is still sold, oh, and if you know companies who
may be interested in LinuxTag participation, dump them to me, the more
companies -> the more money -> the more money can be used for the

So make a plan when which demonstration will run, so people don't have
to wait two hours but can listen to two talks, then come back to the
demonstration they're interested in.

Knowing the times before leaving for LinuxTag would be helpful as
well, hence, make a plan no later than one week before the show, and
the earlier the better.

Anything wrong with this graphic?
