Two huge cases of wood.  One is as big as the pedestal (Sockel), I think
it's arround 1m high and 1.2m width and deep.  The other one contains
all the glas sides and is ~2m deep and quite weighty.  Oh, and you need
at least 6 people to build it.

In a small village near Heidelberg (?).

AFAIK we have nothing left, but Jörg might be able to order some from
... ähh ... what was here name ... Petra?

Please!  Trust in my magic CEO powers!  I never leave my home for mor
than three hours without my Debian mirror!

Just tell me, which architectures we'll need, since I delete sometimes
everything but i386+powerpc of them for ... ähhh ... more important
stuff ;)

Well, the summer 2004 DVDs start to get dusty, but still work very fine.
Would be a waste of our sponsors money, if we could use them

It works well to use burned rc2 netinstalls cds to start the
installation and use the dvd as source medium for packages.  Saves

The nice thing about big harddisks is, that you can install more than 1
flavour.  Actually my barebone has a sarge, at least one sid and woody
chroot, and perhaps I'll try to install hurd on it, there's still some
space left ;)

IIRC nearly all our posters, including the mike one, has credative, so
if you contact him for Ayo posters, DVDs and flyers, ask for the mike
photo, too ;)
