Location for BIM meeting after Muenchner Elektronik Boerse Default from
perhaps approx 15:00 to 16:30. Location: of Cafe Ca Va:
Kazmairstr 44, Tel 5028584. From Boerse: Go South 1.3 city
blocks (Boerse exit being in mid block) parallel to edge of
Wiessen, South to Messe Platz, then West 4.3 blocks; CaVa
is on North side of Kazmairstr between (I think) Ganghofer
(to East of CaVa) & Gerolt- Str (West of CaVa, so
return East!) I think there is also a small park/green area
south of CaVa.
- 27.11.1999, 25.03.2000 25.11.2000 & 24.2.2001 we
rented a stand @ Munich Elektronik Boerse Pschorr-Keller
in the clubs area (usually on stage).
- The public generally come to the Elektronik Boerse to buy cheap
old hardware & software.
- The clubs area up on stage is adjacent to the main
sales floor area. The public go up the steps to the stage
primarily to see what they might find for sale up there,
& some also to check out what the clubs are doing
The club tables are small, room for 2 or 3 to sit
behind with laptops, + a few bits of equipment in
- We are asked about BSD in general, & to see demos
& discuss specific software etc. This is done on a 1
to 1 basis, this is not a forum to do lectures to
- There is no interest on either side to demonstrate
complete operating system installations, & we do not
take hardware to demonstrate this.
- If the public bring their computer, we are happy to
install BSD on request.
- For us BSD people, the Elektronik Boerse stand makes a
venue for us to meet, to promote BSD, to ethernet to
other Unix clubs, & use as a base for excursions to
equipment vendor stands etc.
- 25.11 2000 & 23.02.2001 We ether linked to Uli
Ender of CAM:
Computer Anwender Club Muenchen . Next time we may
try ethernet telephony. (We tried contacting Munich
Linux User Group , to encourage them too to take a
stand & link to the ethernet, but no response.)
- After the Elektronik
Boerse we go for a meal & beer. @ 25.11.2000 we
went to CaVa, Kazmairstr, probably we will go there next
time too (@ mid afternoon it was spacious & un
crowded, room for laptops etc).
The Elektronik Boerse was
oganised by EDUARD WELSCH, NADISTR. 6, 80809 MÜNCHEN, +49
089 3518000. His address is here for snail mail, as email to
elektronikboerse.de fails (a breach of RFC's BTW
hostmaster@Any-Domain Should work !.)
His page mentions a few follow up efforts, but sadly I don't
know any as good as what he used to organise. Sad that he
doesn't find it cost effective to organise any more, but the
reasons he gives (in German) on his web seem to make sense.
One extra problem he doesn't mention though is Munich city
council's previous (& possibly current) desire to repress
selling on Sunday. I recall that distributed/ moved Elektronik
Boerse at least once, from Sunday to Saturday, & has also
been a nuisance to Vintage
