I would love to, but I think we should first of all be very realistic:
organising two parties on the same day with the same people can't
work. Also there is double work for the locations, posters, fliers,
sponsors, etc. Unless we are sure to have enough people who can give a
hand and find confirmed locations soon it's a no go for me. I rememer
how it went last time...

Yes, I did, only my good old laptop has a broken HD and I have to work
with a live CD and external disks since a week or so, but my new
Lenovo W500 is due any day now so I'm already in the starting blocks,
waiting impatiently with CDs and backups in both hands to get this
pretty new toy to work :)
