Ich hatte Zirkulatoren im Sinn und keine Dir. Coupler. Sorry für die Verwirrung.

We just started planning the #c3space assembly for the #35c3.

Like last year&apos;s CSOC the assembly would be intended as place to hang out (and to show of projects) for everyone interested in space exploration, space travel, satellites, cubesats, satellite tracking, diy astronomy, amateur rocketry ... you name it.

See last years website c3space.de for examples.

If you are interested, add yourself to the attendee list in our etherpad: pads.ccc.de/MCXiI1sPhR

Wow! Linus apologized and wants to change:
“My flippant attacks in emails have been
both unprofessional and uncalled for. Especially at times when I made
it personal. (…) I know now this was not OK and I am truly sorry.”

GOTEK Floppy emulator flashed with the really nice "FlashFloppy" open-source firmware. Now even with a shiny OLED display instead of the 7-segments. :)

Polizei ermittelt, weil Student Postillon-Artikel likt

Klingt wie ein Scherz der Satire-Website, passiert aber ganz real. Zwei Münchner Kommissariate verdächtigen den 27-Jährigen gleichzeitig des rechten und des ausländischen Extremismus.
