    He will want a refund on those beers once he finds out your linux buddies stole DirectX from them.

    I didn't get to Oktoberfest until around 17.00 on Sunday due to flight travels and was concerned I wouldn't be able to get a seat in my usual location in the Augustiner tent due to the very late arrival, it being opening weekend, my waiter/waitress not knowing I'd be there that day, etc. Anyhow, I was instantly seated by them making room and in fact had a choice of seats thanks to them. So seating shouldn't be an issue at all this year in the area

    I carry my handy and do have a Munich number that forwards to it, but I never end up hearing it in the tents anyways. Best way to contact me is to just let me know a day or two in advance about what time you'll be there if you're going to the Augustiner spot.

    Hi Michael,

    I will be on the Oktoberfest on October the 3rd. As that's a Sunday, I'll be in Munich from October the first onwards. (Will leave on Monday).


    Is there any way to contact you ?

    -Tom

    Munich's six main breweries are usually locked in bitter competition. But this year, they have taken the unprecedented step of joining forces to create a special beer in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Oktoberfest. The move follows a recent drive to strengthen the festival's folk traditions.


    Just read this... I think on Oktoberfest Wednesdays I may relocate to this special Oktoberfest tent to drink this "secret" Oktoberfest jubile beer, if I like it next week. If anyone goes to Oktoberfest this Saturday or Sunday before I am there, please post how this special Oktoberfest beer is....

    That's unfortunate seeing as they are the best beers in the world, in my opinion.

    If you go, see my post about my Oktoberfest location or just send me a message in advance.

    Have you ever had Augustiner or Franziskaner? It's not all about the beer at Oktoberfest as many people (well, particularly Americans) believe, but the food, people, culture, etc etc are great as well.

    In reality it's just my two~three week annual "holiday" where I go from working (as in benchmarking, software development, writing articles, monitoring RSS feeds, other work, etc etc) almost constantly (well, ~15 or more hour days are the norm) down to ~2 hours a day but as you will see there's already a queue of Phoronix articles and other work to be published during this time.
