I went to "The Gathering" this Easter, as I have done the last 5 years. "The Gathering" is one of the world's largest computer parties with around 5000 attendees, held in the Olympic arena "The Vikingship" in Hamar, Norway every Easter. There are a lot of things going on there these 5 days from Wednesday to Sunday; scene shows, lectures, gaming competitions and other cool things.
This year things seem to have gone quite smoothly for the organizers. There were almost no queue to get in when we got there, and the network worked perfectly. In fact the Tech:Net-crew stated that they were bored and that we weren't even close to max out the internal network capacity. The internet line, though, was easily maxed out, with it's 1,5 GBit.
I have attached some pictures so you can see how big this party really is...
By the way, those of you who thinks that all big Microsoft projects are written i C/C++, check out Jonas' line count trivia.
