6. BP usually has WLAN, so use that if possible.

Actually, don't. The BP WLAN is always overloaded, so if you're sitting on a table all the time anyway, please just take cable with you and plug it into the next switch instead of using the WLAN.

as ps said, 3 years ago:

if you're a foreigner, bring toothbrush, not toothpaste. you can ALWAYS ask someone. with the war on liquids at the airports this has new meaning now.

Never forget about your ribbons.
(please note that avoiding magic is not very hard since he usually doesn't even show up)

And don't forget to come for a visit to the Nuance tables. You can find us where the red wasted "Gott ist da"-banner is located. A free beer awaits you. ;)
