Fwd: YAPC::EU::2005 Call for Atendees

Sadly I doubt I'll be attending, but José sure made Braga seems nice
during his lightning talk at YAPC::NA.  One thing he fails to mention
in his email is that one can apparently buy beer for 85 cents there.
It's not clear whether thats in Canadian dollars, US dollars, or
Euros, but it's pretty damn cheap no matter what.

> The schedule is out (http://conferences.yapceurope.org/2005/schedule),

> There are two things on our minds right now:
> 1) Convincing people to come.
>    Three whole days of Perl, three whole days surrounded by hundreds
>    of Perl programmers. Enjoyful conversations, tasty meals in great
>    company, and awesome speakers doing their talks.
>    Lots of interesting subjects being discussed, lots of extra
>    activities, most of which Perl related. BOF's, walks and talks.
> 2) Convincing people who are coming to register themselves and update
>    their data.
>    Yes, you wouldn't imagine how important this is. We have absolutely
>    no idea at the moment of how many mongers we'll have with us. The
>    more the better, sure, but a more approximate number would make
>    things easier on our side. We really wouldn't like to start the
>    conference with not enough t-shirts, not enough proceedings, not
>    enough food, not enough of all the surprises we'll have for you.
>    If you're coming, please go to
>    http://conferences.yapceurope.org/2005/register and register
>    yourself. All you need to put there is you name and email, so it
>    doesn't even take a minute and you'll be helping us a lot.
>    We currently have over 160 atendees registered and that numbers
>    grows everyday. Out of those, 87 have already confirmed their
>    presence (which means they're speakers or have payed their
>    entrances). Do consider doing this (paying) as soon as possible,
>    too. It's easier to organize a conference when there's money
>    O:-)
>    Also, if possible, take the time to update your personal data in
>    that system, namely your t-shirt size, or you'll risk using a t-
>    shirt that seems to be a skirt on you or, on the oposite side of
>    things, having trouble moving from room to room.
> Help us make a great conference.
> Do come, and do register yourself.
> We'll be waiting for you, and we promise to do everything in our hands
> to make your stay in Portugal a pleasant one. [1]
> The organizers,

>     make sure nobody gets left out. Please forward where appropriate.
