I will definitely be there. However I will only do a KDE stand if someone else 
will be able to help.

Again, I don't fancy sitting in a bare cubicle with nothing but a machine 
running KDE. Are posters, flyers available?

are able to cover a KDE stand as well, then I think we should have a KDE 

I was intending to display KDE 3.1 beta. Any complaints?
