Well I've just returned from a very enjoyable trip to Paris. I hopped on a cheap flight from Prestwick to the "Paris" airport of Beauvais. It was actually all fairly painless and the bus from Beauvais is pretty well organised and drops you in a handy spot fairly central. Michael Scherer (a fellow Mandriva contributor) was kind enough to meet me at the bus station and guide me through the rabbit warren that is the Paris Metro to meet a few other folk including Nanar (Olivier Thauvin) and Thomas "TMB" Backlund (all four of us were staying at Nanar's place). A few other familiar faces where there to! It was great to begin putting faces to the names of the people I've been talking to and working with for the last few years!
