I should call this day the “cat herding day”, because it was the day of most of the arrivals. Was also a day where I had to learn some things, first of all check your phone that it is working and the second if you meet on a subway station, tell the people they should not get out and wait downstairs, otherwise its really hard to find the person you like to meet. But we managed the fetch all the people we expected. First arrivals was Nicu and Emily. Both arrived nearly at the same time but the problem they didnt know each other and in the case of Emily I didnt know the flight number she arrives with. But both managed to get to the appartment alone. The cool thing was, we had directly before our house a cafe with an “Schanigarten” so we could sitting outside drinking a “Melange” waiting for them. After they put there luggage into the appartment, we moved to the next meeting point. The next meeting point was also a cafe in the 7th district so nearly downtown, I had ordered a table there before for all of us and we had a nice brunch there.
Zoltan and Geri arrived also to late at there appartment, so I was sitting on a hot chair not missing the next meeting. But that was one of the points for the brunch, I also had can the group left there fetching Mizmo and Hughsie and come later back. But they managed it in time and they went with me fetching the others. But it took us really a lot of time to find them, so no sightseeing on the rest of the day. So we went all back to our appartments and went later to an restaurant. We was really a big crowd there because Behdad, Miska, Pete Ippel and later Christian Jeitler from the Linuxwochen team joined us also. So the fedorians get mixed with other LGMers. So we had a lot of nice conversations there and Tatica realized first time how big a “Wiener Schnitzel” should be But we stayed not to long because most was tired from the travel and next day LGM would start in the morning. The sad part on this evening was that Kai-Uwe didnt join us, because he liked to prepare his slides for the talks on the next day. Hughsie was not happy about that, but we managed that both had time together later in the week.
