Not that much hacking - still a successful Eindhoven event

So, this was a busy and inspiring day.
About hacking, sadly that happened only a little.
Someone had his laptop stolen this morning, others were getting the build environment in shape again after different use, experimental OS-installations, another still hacking the Windows build system..
In effect there was only *one* building system: mine ;-) Which Rob gratefully used to work on the Scanner window.
So Joost, who delivered a patch earlier (renaming sheets in Calc while copying) and I looked the code, hunting for ideas / hacks at various places in the code. You know, the things that you hope/expect to be not tooooo complicated. Yes, those ;-)
Was good and I learned some useful things. Sad still, that little work in the code was done this day.

Nevertheless, all 7 that attended were pretty happy with the gathering. There was a lot to talk about things that happened since last year. What is so obvious for the people that are active in the international project week after week, can be completely news to the ones that occasionally read a blog or a national user list.. This meeting brought people closer together, and we agreed to meet more and regular in the future.
Now I only hope that the others will have their own working laptops with them next time ;-)

A big thanks to MadLab for hosting us - we'll meet again! - and don't forget their Hacking the City Event, October 22-30
