This photo has been made as it was already dark, so it looks rather red... It shows you the back of our bus. The writing on the back says "Busfahren is cool -- versuch's doch mal" (english: riding the bus is cool -- just try it) 8-)
After 18 hours of traveling (we spent over 1 hour in Hamburg, Germany searching for a McDonald's that has opened past 20:00...) we finally arrived at Messecenter Aars, Denmark. After distributing the entry passes, we ran into the hall to get our reserved seats just right of the big-screen... Well, that wasn't extremely cool at the first day, because the video-beamer burned out with smoke and therefore nothing actually happened on the big-screen. But they got it fixed for the opening ceremony.
This is the entrance of the Messecenter (take the previous picture, zoom in to the left and rotate 45 to the left).
This is a view of the infodesk from behind. "Shall I tell you the story about the voting?" 8-)
This is how the main hall looked like at 07:00...
... And it looked like that a few hours later... On this photo you can see a good view across the main hall... Ofcourse in the center of the picture the big-screen...
This is also hall 1, but a view into the other direction; on the left is the laser-disc room where they showed movied like Scream, Golden Eye, Lost World, Dante's Peak, ...
This is a shot into the direction of hall 2 (see the yellow/green sign right of the "Compaq" sign)...
This is Hall 2... not much to say!
Another view onto the big-screen, seemingly before it burned out 8-) Now let me use this space to tell you about the not-so-cool power breakdown at TP7: It was about 20:00 at the 1st day when the organizers told us to shut down all equipment because the power will be turned off shortly. But apparently not all people did that, and when the power broke down, and the backup-generator started, all computers, monitors etc. booted up at once, immediately overloading the backup-generator and causing it to break down, too. That's when, time by time, all lights went out, and the organizers showed us a 1 meter tall fuse that blew. They told us to have power again in about 5 hours....
