Nice to be in Vilanova i la Geltrú for another GUADEC, the GNOME users' and developers' conference. The logistics do leave a little to be desired in places-- we seem to have the smallest chalet in the semi-official conference 'village' (think Butlins without the redcoats or the funfair), and it's about 4km from the conference, with limited public transport and virtually non-existent taxi services linking them. The free shuttle bus that the organisers laid on does seem to be running now, but not before a good few people had to make the hour-long uphill hike back to the village having found themselves stranded in town.
On the plus side, the sessions are a bit more varied and user-focused than has been the case at some previous GUADECs, and the parties are as good as ever :)
