Conquering Denmark

GNOME Developers plan to invade Denmark en masse on April 6. If you plan
to join the invasion forces, but have not yet
enlisted in the Hacker Army, register before 15 March via the website at Confirmation of your
enlistment will be sent 16 March. If you don't receive your orders, or
have any questions, e-mail sslug-guadec-cc sslug dk 

Scouting parties have been hard at work in the Danish command centers
preparing for the invasion. Reconnaissance information
is available on the website. Routes for moving the troops, sites for
base camps, and supply centers are all scouted.

days have the developer troops on maneuvers. The
assault will be completed the third day with user reinforcements. (Users
may enlist on the website after 15 March.)

dpi greyscale), a 200 word personal blurb, and a half-page abstract by
