As a reminder to the announcement earlier this week, this Friday evening (29 July) there will be a small Phoronix meet-up/gathering in Aker Brygge, Oslo, Norway.

Several Phoronix readers, Linux users, and I will be meeting up at Lekter'n beginning around 17.00 for a few hours to discuss Linux, computer hardware, benchmarking, or whatever else comes to mind. When arriving at the boat, just look around or ask around for Michael Larabel / Phoronix.

I'll be posting updates to my Twitter feed, so stay tuned there. Discussions about this meet-up can be found in this forum thread. There may also be a second Phoronix Oslo meet-up a few days later, but that's yet to be determined. I'll be in Oslo from 29 July through 5 August when it's time for the Berlin Desktop Summit, if anyone else is interested in meeting up or any Oslo companies interested in discussing Linux benchmarking or anything else.

For any Phoronix readers that happen to buy me a beer or drink, the same rule applies as always when in Europe: a free subscription to Phoronix Premium. Phoronix Premium allows viewing ad-free browsing, viewing multi-page articles on a single page, and other benefits. With the strong economy of Norway paired with their taxation and combined with the poor state of the US dollar, it's easily around $16 USD for a 0.25L bottle of beer (that makes it much worse than even Oktoberfest), but still makes it lower than a yearly subscription to Phoronix Premium.

See you on Friday! For anyone that can't make the event or has not been to Norway, here's a very light-hearted video about this wonderful country. There's also some interesting photos and videos of Norway during the time of Russ and National Day, which I took in Trondheim a few years ago.
