That should not be the problem. There's at least space for (DIN :-)
transport coffins *eg* in my car, so it should fit.

Oh. That's then a bigger problem... Let me guess: One person per glass

Ok, so it's not really on the way from me to you neither on the way
from you to Luxembourg. But also not that far from my home (40km to
50km to the south east I guess). Humm.

Ok, I'll contact him regarding the details this evening. Thanks for
all the detailed information so far.

Perfect. Could you try to get a Sparc (32 bits if it makes a
difference, sun4m, you know my pizza box from the BSP) mirror with

Ehm, am I completely wrong or is there a "not" missing somewhere in
that sentence? But anyway: I just thought of one mirror for installing
boxes, not for giving them away to visitors. For giving them away the
2004 DVDs should be just fine, even if dusty. :)

2003 without you? ;-))

Well, do we have some less complicated alternative? Doesn't a
cardboard box match Debians chaotic vein much better? ;-)
