This is a problem if you want correct data of what money went to which
area and where we get all this donations from.
We need to think about a better way for it. :)

They can wait a few minutes more and then eat wit a bit more
appetite. :)

Yes, the last one is good, suggested from one guy at the booth, dont
remember who it was.
It isnt possible to staff the booth if you only have a one-man show
for the whole day. Its hard if you are only two (but you can be there
for much more time). Looks like 3 is a good count for a "subproject",
but maybe hard to get.
So yes, a time where you are guaranteed to be at the booth again should
be required if you leave, so one can point visitors to such a sign.
Everyone who is really intrested comes back then.

Which is now ours.
For the rest of the people here not knowing what we mean:


(I havent found a picture yet where the light is turned on.)

It is now owned by Debian (paid from the Donations we got, the owner
made a special price for us) and can be sent to all events in Germany
or near too Germany, ask me if you want it.
Because it is not easy to assemble/disassemble it should only be used
for events which last at least two days, it isnt worth the work for
smaller events.

Yes, that was great. Whenever I asked to do $RANDOM_STUFF I found people
doing it, and i had a really HUGE amount of $RANDOM_STUFF to delegate.
Thats one of the main things you need for such a booth - people doing
the work.
Thanks to all people doing the work we had.

Seconded. :)
