Eum... même trois fois.  Chouette !

Eigentlich wollte ich schon mal fragen, ob sich sonst jemand 'für 
interessiert.  Ich bin noch am schwanken, weil ich:

1) kein Geld habe (auch nicht die 100 EU-Mäuser).
2) wirklich pleite bin.
3) nicht wirklich weiß, ob mir die Konferenz etwas bringt.

zu 1 und 2 könnt Ihr wahrscheinlich weniger Hilfreiches sagen.  
Aber zu 3 könnte mir ein etwas erfahrener "Mongueur" eine große 
Hilfe leisten.  

Viele Grüße
