It's time for the annual Phoronix meet-up at Oktoberfest in Munich.

Unlike how it's usually been in past years where I'm at the Augustinerzelt on the wiesn for all of the days of Oktoberfest, this year I will only be there from the 23 September (Sunday; tomorrow) through 26 September (Wednesday). I should be there from about 10.00am on for all of those days.

For Phoronix readers wishing to meet up, while at the wiesn I will be at the Augustiner tent as always and sitting within the same area that I have been for the past five years; it basically comes down to the area on the side of the kitchen between the kitchen area and the restrooms, usually within the first few tables in.

My waiter at the Augustiner tent is Günther and the same waiter for the past five years. If you ask him for Michael or "Froschmann" (my wiesn nickname due to lederhosens with toe shoes), he will certainly tell you where I'm at.

As usual, for Phoronix readers that buy me at least one Maß, you do earn a free one-year subscription to Phoronix Premium. The beer is certainly great or if you simply want to buy a beer for all of the great Linux benchmarking work and XDC2012 coverage or whatever; separately you can subscribe to Phoronix Premium if you won't be at the wiesn but wish to support the site. At other Phoronix meet-ups, there's even been some to earn a lifetime subscription to Phoronix Premium.

If this is your first time to Oktoberfest be sure to read my guide to Oktoberfest and last year's recap.

Due to my only four-day stay at the Oktoberfest this year, there won't be any formal Phoronix meet-up but just come on by and have a beer or just to say "Servus!"

See you at the wiesn!
