Less Than Two Weeks To Phoronix @ Oktoberfest

Phoronix

In a little more than one week Oktoberfest will get underway in Munich and thus the yearly Phoronix pilgrimage.

Compared to some years where I've been there for the entire duration of the wiesn, this year I'll be in Munich from the morning of Sunday, 22 September until Thursday, 26 September. I'll be in the tents from Sunday midday to Wednesday night.

For those Phoronix readers wishing to meet up during the usual wiesn adventures, the location will be the same as the past five years within the Augustiner tent... There might be an organized Phoronix meet-up on the Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday. If you'll be in Munich on one of those days and are interested in an organized Linux / open-source meet-up, please express interest in our forums or by contacting me or tweeting.

As usual, if you buy your's truly a Maß of Augustiner you can earn yourself a free year of Phoronix Premium subscription. If you're not going to be at the wiesn but would like to contribute to the beer fund for all the work that I tirelessly put into Phoronix on a daily basis year-round to provide updated Linux and open-source news, Linux hardware reviews, and Linux benchmarks, PayPal tips are always appreciated. Even while at Oktoberfest -- as in past years -- there will still be the daily dose of Phoronix news, Phoronix articles and reviews going up, etc. Oktoberfest nor any other holidays take me away from working daily. (At least Anzwix is able to help out too.)

Regardless of whether or not you're going to the Phoronix Oktoberfest meet-up, if this is your first time conquering the wiesn, it's worth reading The Phoronix Guide to Oktoberfest and past Oktoberfest recaps. If you're looking out for me at Oktoberfest, I'm in the same general area every day of every year... Find the Augustiner tent:

Within the Augustiner tent, I'm located on the side nearest the kitchen and the area of tables between the kitchen and bathrooms and usually a couple tables away from the elevated bandstand. It's been my spot for the past five years.

If you're unable to spot me, you can ask the waiter in the area, Günther, a friend of mine. When at Oktoberfest and drinking Augustiner I'm either sitting at one of Günther's tables or with the waitress serving tables next to him, Susie. Just ask Günther where is "Michael" or "Froschmann" (frog man), my other name at Oktoberfest given to me due to my unique apparel of lederhosen and toe shoes.

Asking certain security personnel at the Augustiner tent can also sometime be useful in locating me at Froschmann or getting into the entrance when the tent is closed due to full capacity.
