Welcome to this years Slackathon (swedish version), a bit later then usual but with the same enthusiasm as previous years.

The HTML-design is as poor as always, same place as last time, and your money is as welcome this time as last year!

The date you want to hilight in your calendar softwares, PDA's or smartphones is September 13th.

As the last time around, there will be no entrance fee and all profits made from the cafeteria and mechandise stand will be donated directly to OpenBSD/OpenSSH, all work during the event are volunteered. For those of you who want to, we will be serving dinner free of charge to all who have announced beforehand that they are coming. You can announce you're attending either directly to Janne Johansson or to the slackathon mailing list. Please do not forget to announce your attendance or otherwise we will not be able to supply enough food, other than that notice about your attendance is not necessary, although we do apreciate "I will be there!"-mails very much.
