Note to Russian OpenBSD fans: wim@ in Moscow, 6-10 December

Contributed by toxa on from the dept.

According to his post on misc@, Wim Vandeputte will be in Moscow, Russia, in December from the 6th to the 9th. It's a very good cause for russian OpenBSD fans to meet together, and organise a beer party ;)
Of course, Wim will bring some usual OpenBSD stuff, like T-shirts and CDs. It's not so easy for russian fans to get official OpenBSD stuff from openbsd.org for various reasons, so I'm pretty sure, there're a lot of users will be happy to get this stuff directly from Wim ;)
Let's make a big OpenBSD party!

      Would you people please stop doing this. First typo is as bad, if not worse, than "FIRST POST". Send corrections to editors@ undeadly. Thank you.

      Potentially ofending to modern day post-soviet country residents. No different than associating germans with their past misdeeds, nazi and communist regimes.

          I agree; it's not like we're calling all Germans "Nazis" or black people "niggers." As someone who remembers that song well, I thought it was hilarious. It is also a reminder of why we in the United States, too, need to be vigilant, since our freedoms are under attack here.

          Back in the USSR...don't know how lucky you are boy...'cause you have OpenBSD today, and you couldn't before!

          If I may explain,

          What did Ukraine do wrong, what the states of Baltics did wrong etc., etc.? They were occupied by force unwillingly made communist states. Some of them shared pan-European identity and values accumulated by centuries that are no different than the US currently provides. So what is it that they must learn? That an imperical force driven by unmoral and unjust ideology will take away their freedom, dignity and right to exist in their own right? Perhaps, but please I must ask do not err, do not lable them "USSR" alike, for their souverainty this way is unwantedly denied.

        Your post is potentially offending to all Beatles fans. :-)

        Your post asking people to self-censor is quite offensive. Did you not catch the song reference?
