ODTUG08 - Saturday

I got up at 5 AM in the morning, due to the jetlag...

As I couldn't really do anything I created some more statistics for DG Tournament and answered some mails.

After a nice shower I went outside together with John Scott to have a breakfast. It wasn't that good, so next time I might try another place or just stay in the hotel. It was supposed to be a famous beignet place, but I didn't like it, too greasy.

Before noon we had to go shopping, because John lost his luggage (it was BA who lost it). John blogged about, so have a look at his blog if you want all details!

At 12.30 I was expected for the community service of ODTUG. We went to a school and painted about 8 or 9 classrooms. It was nice to help the children after hurricane Katrina.

When I got back I changed, did some more surfing on the internet and went to the Speaker Symposium welcome reception. The reception was on the 49th floor of the Sharaton hotel. Pretty impressive view! I forgot to take a picture...

After that we met some friends: Mark Rittman, Borkur Steingrimson, Wilfred van der Dijl, Aino Andriessen, John and myself. We went for some foods and drinks. I'm sure one of them will post a picture of us!
