I didn't get to Oktoberfest until around 17.00 on Sunday due to flight travels and was concerned I wouldn't be able to get a seat in my usual location in the Augustiner tent due to the very late arrival, it being opening weekend, my waiter/waitress not knowing I'd be there that day, etc. Anyhow, I was instantly seated by them making room and in fact had a choice of seats thanks to them. So seating shouldn't be an issue at all this year in the area :D
Hell has quite possibly frozen over in Bavaria... A Microsoft Europe exec was buying me beers yesterday.
He will want a refund on those beers once he finds out your linux buddies stole DirectX from them.

Germans do not have a Passport (thats because the Personalausweis in english Personal=worker ausweis=license isn't a passport the personalausweis is the regestation as a valid worker for the force of allied power)
Germans do not have an democaty thats because there was no Referendum about our Goverment and no Referendum about the "Grundgesetz" the Allied power force us the Grundgesetz and the Democaty system there was no Referendum.
the last free Referendum in germany about Democaty was in 1848 "Frankfurter Nationalversammlung Paulskirche" and the Constitution of the free german nation without any Allied force makes us to an "Constitutional monarchy" by Democaty Referendum.
and no the 'Weimar Republic' isn't an Democaty by Referendum by the Citizenship because german lost the World war 1 and the Allied Force us to do this 'Weimar Republic forced by the Allied'
so the BRD is just the Administration Construct of the Allied FORCE and they block us to habe an Constitution
I'm also German and that's just bullshit.
show me our Constitution?

(1) Dieses Grundgesetz bedarf der Annahme durch die Volksvertretungen in zwei Dritteln der deutschen Länder, in denen es zunächst gelten soll."
in english : this basic law needs to have 2/3 of the Voice of the "Member of Parliament" means ('Parliamentary republic' by law not Referendum ) to be a basiclaw for german.
There was NO Referendum about 'Direct democracy' versus 'Parliamentary republic' and if Germans wana have any kind of Democracy!
