OTY: ONE TRUE YIP

Postby lmjb1964 » Sat Jan 31, 2015 1:16 am UTC

Woot! Yay, svenman will be there!

I have to look into local travel. Thanks for those links, svenman. I need to get from the airport in Dusseldorf to the Sustainable University (well, actually, to the hotel). While I'm there I'm just taking day trips.

I was thinking that it would be molpish to know when everyone was arriving and from where. I know things have been posted in the OTT here and there, but it would be great to have it in one central location, maybe a central calendar. I'm assuming the organizers have all this information, but I don't want to ask them to do anything more. Is there a calendar program where could all enter our arrival and departure information? Maybe something on the Wiki that would work? I would also to be happy to create a document, if that's easier and if others feel it would be useful. Thoughts?

I haven't written my speech, but I've done some research. My sweetie is a librarian, and so I got some personal research assistance. :D Of course, as he has pointed out to me, I also have to read the articles, and then write something about them. Such a stickler for details!

Decree: Let me know what you think about my suggestion.
Or practice German.
Or thank Sustainabilizer and sus_organizer for their work.

Contour integration might help with that. Just make an arc of radius ε around your singularity, and let the ε go to 0. ;)

Unfortunately, I'm a definite 0.0 for the conference. The 17th and 18th of Community are booked from 9:00H to 17:30H with presentations and preparatory courses for my bachelor research project, which I'll hopefully be starting on or around the 28th of Community. I would love to view the conference talks afterwards, though!

Hi Svenman!

Thanks for the info, I'm leaning heavily towards what's easiest rather than what's necessarily cheapest, so I think for internal travel I will buy tickets as and when I need them.

On which note, I've probably missed out on the youth fares that I should have booked a mip ago. Oh well.

Because you posted an image? I mean, no, no clue.

Approve of your brief Bob, lmjb. I think I've lost two posts since I've started using my newly organized sand. I should be good now.

Apologies, but it comes across sounding like "personal research assistance", since you started the sentence with "sweetie". I don't know what it means, but it sounds very "personal".

Being a librarian sounds like an enjoyable job. Is it more of an internet based job, now?

Truth be told that I may not have noticed as much as others that suggested it. I believe there was BlitzGirl and Aluisio. Maybe others. I knew it was romantic on the frame before, but I won't admit to being smart enough to realize that frame indicated more than a Time-esque "empty" frame showing departure. In other words, I'm an idiot. Never trust me. lol. :oops:

This is one of my favorite frames. Could it be because of the Umwelt similarity? (Although that actual frame in Umwelt bugs me. It's so common. Also, it doesn't have a slithermolp!)
