Unofficial live stream (until the scenesat guys set something up, in case they will):


We probably will also stream the compos.

Internet provided by the most insane setup ever: Viprinet-bonded Satelite dish internet (KA SAT) + local crappy french DSL.

sadly I don't have a line-in at my laptop, so I can only use the webcam mic as audio source.

Finally got home. Still knackered about driving Paris-Avignon-Paris during the weekend - 1400 km all in total! It looked a lot smaller distance on the map.... erm, never again (driving, that is)! Next year we'll try to get cheap flights to Nice or Marseille and rent a car from there.

And there better be MAiN next year as well! HERE, TAKE MY MONEY!

Party place: AWESOME
Atmosphere: AWESOME
Weather: AWESOME

Then few comments that bothered me a bit:

1) When the toilets were taken out of use on Saturday, nobody seemed to know what was going on. Yes, the toilet/shower area was closed and there was signs says "go to the bushes", and the shed toilet was taken into use, but I would have still liked to have information on a) what was wrong with the actual toilet, b) could they be repaired, c) if b=yes, then when. Some people sneaked in extreme need (since the shed toilets didn't have proper seats) and said that the toilets indoors worked just fine, so it made me wonder what was really wrong with them.

Hah, a first world problem.... "The showers were out of use so I had to jump into a pool to wash myself"

2) The lovely ladies behind the counter didn't speak anything else than French. Don't get me wrong - I'm not here with the "ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU SPEAK IT" attitude, after all we were in France and French was the language to be used. The problem becomes when you're trying to order food or drinks and it takes several minutes try to explain what you want since the menu was in English, but they didn't know the English names of the dishes. "Cheeseburger" didn't work, "hamburger avec fromage" yielded a bit better response. Pro tip: at Easter parties there's a menu in both German and English at the food stands so you can just point at the list and you'll get what you want. Maybe bilingual menus next year?

Also, the mandatory <joke>"There wasn't any milk in the fridge!"</joke>

I'll definitely come next year again if MAiN is organized again! Awesome party <3

One of the best parties. We're still in Nice, going to fly home tomorrow.

My ribs still kind of hurt as does my nose, but seems there's nothing broken or damaged beyond repair! My apologies if I was extra annoying on Friday. Wasn't planning on drinking quite that much.. But yeah, cheap wine..

Yeah, great party. Thanks for making it happen. I only wish I could've stayed in France a bit longer. Maybe next time (I hope there is a next time :)
