Well we’ve arrived, met up with more Irish guys over here at FOSDEM, had waffles and lots of Kriek beer. Six of us left Dublin yesterday from the Ubuntu Ireland LoCo, and we ended up finding a Debian guy on the place who lives in Dublin so he’s been with us on our wee journey. An early flight at 6:50am meant by the time we arrived, we’d been up hours and hungry, in search of waffles and coffee and checking into our hotels, we walked into the city dropping our bags off at different locations along the way. Who knew we’d find it so hard to find a place to sit down find coffee and waffles in the same place. We ended up a little restaurant and folks got their coffee and food and we started to sample the beer, at 12 in the day….
Should note I’m going to create a quotes page based on the groups smart ass comments, we’ve ubuntu, kde, fedora and Debian folks with us this weekend, comments in good fun and jest are flying left right and centre and it’s proving rather entertaining. Last night we went to the beer event, just sitting down and chatting to random folks, it’s great. I got to put the faces to the handles of the freenode staffers and go out for dinner with them. So all in all a great day.
Today the talks have started, great buzz around the place and a few sore heads. Looking forward to the ubuntu dinner tonight.
