Two Weeks To PhoronixFest... Errr Oktoberfest

There is just two weeks to go until Munich's 177th Oktoberfest gets underway (though it's the 200 year anniversary) and again there will be a Phoronix presence this year at Oktoberfest.

No well-organized get together is yet planned, but post in this thread of the forums if you are interested and what day(s) you'll be in Munich so something can be organized with maximum attendance. The event would either be at Oktoberfest in the Augustiner tent or in the city at Augustiner Keller, Augustiner Großgaststätten, Spatenhaus, or Zum Spockmeier.

Regardless, anyone interested in hearing more or discussing the Phoronix Test Suite with the upcoming 3.0 milestone or any other topics relevant to Phoronix (including, but not limited to, ATI's Linux drivers and the forthcoming Steam/Source Engine for Linux) can stop by the Augustiner tent. I'll be there every day except for opening weekend (due to the X Developers' Summit in Toulouse) and on other days there will be some past Phoronix contributors and other technology enthusiasts too.

I and anyone else will be in the Augustiner tent sitting in the same general area as last year. This area is between the band stand and the kitchen, on the side closest to the W.C. and usually just a table or two from the main walkway. Just look for shirts with the Phoronix Test Suite logo and/or other Linux logos while in Lederhosen tracht. The waitress in the area should be Susie or the waiter is Günther. Asking either of them for "Michael" should lead you to the correct spot.

Two Weeks To PhoronixFest... Errr Oktoberfest


Like last year, anyone that buys a Maß of Augustiner for your's truly as a tip for Phoronix, gets a free year subscription to Phoronix Premium.

For anyone missing out on drinking liters of Augustiner while eating Hendl or Weißwurst and listening to Fliegerlied, some of the articles already in the publishing queue for the next couple of weeks include: Btrfs benchmarks from Linux 2.6.34 through Linux 2.6.36, re-testing of the SilverStone HDDBOOST using a new unit, updated encrypted LVM benchmarks, Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 benchmarks against OpenSolaris b134 / Linux / FreeBSD 8.1, measuring Fedora's mobile power performance on three different notebooks over the past several releases, measuring the Fedora boot speed performance going back to F10, a review of the Lenovo ThinkPad W510, ATI R600 classic Mesa 7.9 testing, ATI R300 classic Mesa 7.9 testing, updated R300g benchmarks, initial benchmarks of the classic Mesa Evergreen driver, LLVMpipe benchmarks with the soon-to-be-released LLVM 2.8, ATI Eyefinity Linux testing, Ubuntu 10.10 Beta benchmarks, and an ATI Radeon HD 5450 Linux review.

Once Oktoberfest is over, I'll be in San Diego, California in October for anyone else interested in hearing about the yet-to-be-announced Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 plans or other Phoronix topics, if there are any LUGs or other events.

Contact me or post in this thread about either event. Prost!
