A few yacht flags (45 x 30 cm) left
Hi, many years ago I produced some yacht flags (polyester). Perhaps anyone interested ? I'll bring the remaining on Sunday. Producing costs were 15,- € per flag.

Hey Wikinaut. I'm interested in a yacht flag. I'd only need to go to the bank to get some money.
Long Night of Science (Saturday)
"[Die] Lange Nacht der Wissenschaft" (engl. Long Night Of Science) takes place tonight (Saturday) in Berlin-Potsdam. It begins at 5 PM and ends at 1 AM. If you buy a ticket after 11 PM (2300), you only have to pay 5 euros (Hackathon ends at 11 PM). You can meet scientists and ask them questions. Here's a list of locations (English version by Google Translator). It's also about computer science (see here (English version by Google Translator)). Please attend by creating a post with your real and username below (or just the real name as IP address). I'll contact you after 10 PM (I'm minigolfing).

I uploaded this nice graffiti next to our location to Commons. :-)
Planning a trip to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunsthaus_Tacheles if you fancy seeing some more tonight.
Open invitation - come find me (Jon with the hat - http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7138/7149826067_053a624de7.jpg) and we'll make plans
I couldn't see it yesterday because the sky was already dark. I can just say: that's Germany! Today in the morning I used the underground train and two men went into the train. Then they opened unexpected their bags and played music on their instruments. To my surprise they weren't bad.
for those being interested, I corrected (perspective correction) the image on Commons using the free ShiftN program.

someone else has this problem
Freenode staffer kloeri says this has been fixed.
Ways to extend the MediaWiki (web) installer
Is somebody interested in extensibility of the MediaWiki installer? Or even has experience with extending it? Is there a way to add more installation steps or to change the existing ones? Are there plans for future development?
I'd love to learn more about this topic. Maybe someone else too?
Osnard, Brion Vibber rewrote the installer a while back, so maybe talk to him?
Related: I was talking to Roan earlier today, and suggested that perhaps there should be a "retry" button when there's an error in the installer, in addition to the "back" and "continue" buttons already present. I figured this might be of interest to anyone working with improving the installer.
Here are some photos of the event so far: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Victorgrigas#Berlin_Hackathon_2012 Hopefully I haven't photographed anyone who does not wish to be photographed! Please let me know if I have!
I uploaded some photos I took to Commons on commons:Category:Hackathon_Berlin_2012. There should not be people with the 'no photo' badge in these.
I also created a category on Commons for pictures taken during the short visit of Berlin (on sunday for my case) commons:Category:Berlin_visit_during_Hackathon_2012
Wikimania mobile app
I apologize that I'm not there in person to ask this, but someone on IRC suggested I share it with the Hackathon.
The idea of a Wikimania mobile app has come up - was wondering if anyone at Hackathon had an interest.
