There is, they say, 1700 people signed in. Today, since it 's a working day, only about 400 are here.
The Corel people are showing their instal, with, let's say, less than stellar results (as in 1 hour into the demo and still no install).
Checked the place where I am suposed to give my talk about KDE2 tomorrow... it a damn stadium. 400 people can fit there. Now I'm scared :-)
Checked into a little hotel called Colonial, just 5 blocks away from the conference... nice, cheap, clean. No elevator, though, and I carry the biggest, heaviest bag you can imagine (it contains clothes for three days, man's kit (shaving/etc), and a full tower system :-)
Met with some of the guys I know, César from LUCAS, a couple guys from LUGLI, a lady from the MAGIC (that a ministery :-)
In an hour or so, I will attend César's talk about i18n. Should be interesting.
And no, I have not met RMS yet, because he will arrive tomorrow (even after I gave my talk, so he will not be there ;-)
