Dear notebookers and laptoppers,

Thanks to Abdiel for reminding me of the plug issue!
This is important for all of you that have strange plugs and sockets at
home -- strange meaning different from ours of course :-)

{german power outlets/plugs }
In Germany it is 220V, 50Hz, and the plug looks like o o
The distance between o and o may also be of importance ;-)

{ adapter specifications }
There is a really great website where you can download pdf's
giving the exact dimensions of any plug/adapter you can think of!

{ be prepared }
Please make sure you got the right adapters before coming to Germany -
there is no radio store or the like for miles around Haus Neuland!
You might be able to get Adapter-Plugs (but probably no voltage
transformers) at Frankfort Airport, but you should'nt rely on that too


Alternatively you might bring 20 notebook batteries or a an inflatable
power plant. (Don't rely on solar energy, it's a winter workshop)
