BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

"Exactly. Thom, I totally understand you not coming. But Eugenia... c'mon. You live in the area."

Maybe she tried to boot haiku and got disgruntled?

Predictor,

I'm not really into public warnings, but please refrain from trolling, or I'll resort to other measures.

Thank you.

You define comments you disagree with as trolling?

OK, Thom Holwerda, your tasteless editorial style wins.

Please remove my account.

People have lives outside of computing. Perhaps a hastily thrown together and not well defined substitute for a failed convention for a niche OS got trumped by other real life plans and responsibilities? I know that I never gave Faltercon a second thought after I read about it. I think that Bryanv has a *highly* over-inflated opinion of the event. And based upon what he has posted here, possibly of himself, as well.

Please give me one reason to give such a harsh response. It's weird to read Thom telling predictor to behave and a few posts later, read your post. Granted, bryanv comment was misplaced, but there's absolutely no reason to give such a reply.

Edit: typos, spelling and stuff
