  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Must be a new record. More than 10 hours before the official opening, the fence at Entrance East has been broken down. Dunno about West, haven't heard from anyone on that side (but usually, when the fence goes down on one side, they open up on the other).

I'm frankly disapointed...

We had to stand at entrance 6 in the festival area looking at 20.000 sprinting out on the fields to get the best spots, we were promised a spot since we are doing some trash recycling-party thing with a pirate ship... (if you are at the festival you might have a clue to what i am talking about) icon_smile.gif

Actually right now i am writing this post while im sitting on a pirate ship overlooking the gravelpit... HSDPA internet is awesome!

For some, it's a bad thing when the fence gets taken, for others, and many more, it's a moment of excitement and adrenalin.

But don't forget, the faster the tents gets raised, the faster can the drinking begin!

I had some coworkers working on the big screens, they where working triple speed because the screens needed to be ready to show a movie at 21, they where just about finishing the last cable when they saw the fence go down...
And the construction workers at the city centers, needed to duck for cover, so they didn't got run over...

RF had planed that the waiting, for the fence to go down at 0800, where going to be a nice experience and one big party.

But some people just choose to ruin the experiences, for every one else!!!

Remember there is a lot of volunteers working around the clock, just for you can have the best festival in your life, and it is an selfish act to tip over the fence...

Btw. a little bonus info, if you had done the green footsteps, you could have put up a camp Friday the 26 of june at E....

On West, there were flyers lying around, asking everyone to break the fence as early as possible to beat the East.

It has gone pretty far now. Starting to sound like war strategics.

Taking down the fence this early is especially bad for people coming from Sweden, Norway, Finland etc. We started at 9 am in Stockholm, picked up a few people along he way and came to Entrance West only to see that the camping area was filled with tents.

Next year ... should we start driving from Stockholm at 5 am Saturday? Or should we take another day off (Friday) from work to get a camping spot?

Yes... or you have to built up your camp before they built up the fence.... maybe a week before or so...

I was very angry on Sunday morning. We arrived at 5:30 in the morning at east, 2,5 hours before the camping area was planned to open, paid our 350 DKK for the paid parking, only to hear from most of the volunteers, that all spots on east are taken and we should try it in west. I wanted to get my money back for the parking-ticket, because it is completely nonsens to pay for parking in east, when you have to camp in west, but this was not possible.

So we walked around nearly 3 hours an get very various informations from the volunteers. One said, they will open D this afternoon, some said, we have to queue in front of E and another one told us, that P will open certainly today. Funny to read, that P never existed this year, but at this point, we hoping to get in P.

So we walked back, to find the entrance to P... and, of course, we found out that there was nothing. Fortunately we got a little spot at N64, so the whole thing came to a nearly perfect end for us. But that was only luck.

In 2005 I arrived at 1 p.m. on Sunday and I was able to choose between some very nice spots. There was really enough space for all. This year it was a complete desaster.
