Well, I don't know if it is possible for me to come, because I'm in Rotterdam to complete my internship in this time. I think, that this isn't the biggest problem for me, rather then the expenses for travel.

I checked at opodo.de for travelcosts by plane to kristiansand and it was very expensive: 700 EUR and more (the route is stupid - they'll fly through europe to oslo). The "Deutsche Bahn" couldn't give me a price, so maybe there will be other chances or places to look for a more cheaper ticket. Please let me know, if there are cheaper ways ... I found some hotels to stay and there are about 764 NOK (about 87 EUR) times 3 and i got: 261 EUR for accomondation. Maybe its possible to stay as a student in the student flats or in a motel room ... If that is, what it looks like (more than 1000 EUR) i better stay in rotterdam for this year and let some more important persons for gimp development to meet eachother in kristiansand. About 500 EUR looks possible for me, but traveling by car seems more stressfull for my car than for me ;) Greetings, -- Roman Joost www: http://www.romanofski.de email: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
