Ah ... translators ... I remember that we had quite some fun when the 
translator started to make jokes (of couse only for the non french who 
had headsets) ... some on this list who were present might remember the 
"Sorry folks, i cannot translate this yet as i have no clue where this 
gusy is heading and there is sign that he will finish his sentence in 
time." Of course he got an applause afterwards.

Okay, but in general I do have good memories of meetings in France. 
Especially one Gutenberg meeting in a castle: 50% talks and 50% very 
good eating. And of course the famous nice 16th aniversay meeting ...
