So even when we are writing about drinking on a meeting or just
virtual together e.g. when the first phones are out - you don't
have to wait to salute/drink to that for 8 years - just chooce
some non-alcoholic drink and join.

I hope Seans small presentation at the FOSDEM will be recorded
by the FOSDEM people - good point - I should ask them, I could
help them... think you was a bit kidding with the plane ticket,
right? But I'm shure there are more ways that you could bring
in your skills and ideas.

But your answer about the mailinglist statistic was cool :)

You have read that Sean and the others of his team are *very* 
busy at the moment, so when the biggest problems solved and it
is clear, when the phase-1 can start it will be a better moment
trying to ask for discount for being a schoolboy or student
or asking about upgrade (price reduction) for buying 
neo1973-version2-phase1 in 2008 after already buying 
neo1973-version1-phase1 this year.
