Greetings from Norway

Arrived late-ish last night in Kristiansand for GUADEC, and was one of the lucky ones whose luggage also turned up. Thought the omens were good the wine I had on the plane was from Extremadura, home of one of GNOME's biggest success stories so far, but on closer inspection it actually turned out to be from Estremadura in Portugal.

Things nonetheless looked up when a merry local in the otherwise deserted bar across the road from our hotel bought a round for the Sun crowd because he'd spotted Laca sporting a Linux t-shirt. Given the beer prices in Norway (about 8 euro for 0.5l in the bar we moved on to later), either he doesn't do it very often, or his proclaimed computer expertise earned him a tidy sum during the IT boom.
