DocScrutinizer05HMMMMM - I *should* get a few days off and maybe travel to HH13:36
whitequarkhmmm, I got a new USB<>SATA adapter for my CNC controller13:36
whitequarkit looks identical to the one I have, sans PCB color13:37
whitequarklet's hope it was done by different chinese guys, or at least it's a different revision, because the one I have doesn't work...13:37
sb0DocScrutinizer05, yay!13:37
sb0and you should give a LT on Neo900 :)13:38
DocScrutinizer05sure not. I can't give talks13:38
DocScrutinizer05forgot how to talk during last 10 years or so13:38
DocScrutinizer05but we can discuss all we like, in a small group, having some beer13:39
DocScrutinizer05preferrably under plain air, in a smokers area ;-)13:39
whitequarkin english?13:40
DocScrutinizer05I could bring the protoV1 with PHS8 on it :-)13:40
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: also in english if somebody doesn't know german13:41
whitequarkI just fetched the passport from the consulate, in fact13:41
DocScrutinizer05you plan to visit?13:41
DocScrutinizer05so I _have_ to go to HH next weekend13:41
whitequarkthat reminds me, the only place in Hamburg that wasn't absurdly expensive was something called Bedpark Stellingen13:43
whitequarkbut I'm kind of unsure how to get to the EHSM location from there13:43
DocScrutinizer05maybe I can find somebody to design&build the spacerframe for Neo90013:43
DocScrutinizer05oh yeah, I need to find a room :-/13:43
whitequarkthe only bus nearby (if I trust google) is really inconvenient and I bet I'm going to go broke on taxis13:44
DocScrutinizer05taxi is sth from 10 to 30EUR, depending on distance. I estimate13:44
whitequark30EUR*2*3 days = sad whitequark13:45
whitequarkthis is what google has to offer13:47
whitequarkseems... far from optimal13:47
sb0yeah, hotels in HH are a fucking pain in the ass... tell me about it :((13:49
sb0most of the quotes we got were minimum 3x our budget13:49
whitequarkwow. so it's not just me being cheap13:50
sb0additionally there's some imbecilic street festival going on in HH on the same time as EHSM13:50
sb0which uses hotel space...13:50
whitequarkthey took something like 235eur from me, and it was literally the cheapest offer that didn't involve sharing a room with other people (eugh)13:50
sb0(the more imbecilic, the more popular)13:50
DocScrutinizer05ooh, expected to see "talk: whitequark" at http://ehsm.eu/#BorninUSSR. But it's 'only' about USSR junk13:52
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: nope I'm not having a talk this year13:53
whitequarkmaybe at the next I'll show off my DIY time of flight mass spectrometer13:53
whitequark... if I ever get that to work13:53
Action: DocScrutinizer05 wonders if the whole thing is affordable13:54
DocScrutinizer05ticket, travel, *hotel*...13:54
whitequarkoh, EHSM13:54
whitequarkthen I dunno13:54
DocScrutinizer05migth sum up to almost 4 figures expense13:54
whitequarkthat's how it went for me. but I suppose you don't need such a long flight13:55
DocScrutinizer05a flight would be cheap if I could get one, but I'm afraid I had to go by train13:55
DocScrutinizer05anyway, a 250EUR for travel seems a fair estimation13:56
DocScrutinizer05another 300 for hotel, according to what you just wrote13:57
DocScrutinizer05100EUR for ticket13:57
DocScrutinizer05possibly 100EUR for transport13:57
sb0DocScrutinizer05, we have low-income tickets for 45E13:57
DocScrutinizer05I'm no student ;-)13:58
sb0and for accommodation, you might get a couch for free asking on the public ML. though that's also a student-like thing to do *g*14:00
ysionneauabout accomodation15:28
ysionneau09:01 < AlisonChaiken> Folks, I have reserved a room in Altona through AirBnb.   The host says that it will accomodate two, in case anyone's looking for lodging.15:28
ysionneauafaik it's still relevant15:28
DocScrutinizer05believe me, nobody want to share a room with me ;-P17:01
DocScrutinizer05and I know people who will beat me for sharing room with another female17:02
DocScrutinizer05(assuming Alison is a girl's name)17:02
DocScrutinizer05I'll prolly not be able to join17:03
ysionneauyes I think Alison is a girl17:28
