Hi Holger and Geoff
A spare room with bandwidth is available in Adelaide.
We do have two dogs so if there's a third we should be able to fit it in.
Depends if the transport is a goer.

Sure (and thanks). I already offered one and a half to Jonathan and Pascal ;)
Though on different topics: debian-edu and live-package (thats the half talk,
as I cannot tell so much about live-packages internals, only about my fai-
and debian-edu autobuilds of it.)

I think so too! :) I'm definitly curious to see how LCA feels and is organized
and the video preperations I've seen so far look _very_ promising!

Well, originally I planned to stay for around a week longer in .au then LCA,
but Silvia already asked me if I could give a presentation at the SLUG
meeting on the 26th. So now I'm planning to stay until the 27th.

The limiting factors are my dog, which I have to take care off at some time
and a customer project which has to be finished on Februrary 15th and which I
doubt I can do completly while travelling around .au ;) So basically between
after LCA and before the 26th I'm free to travel around, provided I have
network sometimes.
