So here’s an offer:
I’ll come to your event (be it LUG, exhibition, or just an afternoon barbeque with a few friends) and discuss Gentoo, Open Source, performance-tweaking linux or whatever topics you want (optionally a shiny presentation, if there’s a good topic). All I ask in return are the travel costs from Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and food and shelter.
If that sounds like the perfect rent-a-geek opportunity to you … Contact me and we’ll figure it out. And if you ask nicely you can even get a realtime Gentoo bugfixing session out of it!
