Change in the Warpstock Europe 2015 schedule for audio stream listeners

eComStationNews.com - Thu, 20150604 - 16:29 -0600

Duo to last minute logistical issues, Lewis Rosenthal from Arca Noae, LLC cannot make it to Warpstock Europe in person.

Lewis Rosenthal will be presenting via Skype. However, David Azarewicz, another principal in Arca Noae, will be present at the event.

Because Lewis Rosenthal is in New York, the schedule has been modified to accommodate his time differential.

For people wanting to listen to the audio stream, please visit the updated program:

Audio and possible video stream for Warpstock Europe 2015...

eComStationNews.com - Sun, 20150531 - 12:33 -0600

On the 6th and 7th of June 2015 in Munich, Warpstock Europe 2015 will be organized by the Dutch OS/2 foundation. Sponsored by Arca Noae LLC.

If you can not make it to the event you can always tune in to the audio stream. For more information how set this up please visit:

One reason for not waiting for the video's/audio tracks to be put onto Youtube is because during the live broadcast, you will be able to ask questions via IRC! Again see above link for details how to access the IRC channel.

Last week I was approached by Udo Schneider from Munich who has offered to setup a video stream at Warpstock Europe. We are still working out details!

We will send a new press release it that happens. But the first place where you can find details of where you can follow such a video stream will be placed on the above URL!

Hope you can tune into the audio/video stream!
Please take into account the time difference!

I have talked to A&O hostels and tickets for access to Warpstock Europe can be sold *WITHOUT* lunch until the 3th of June.
I need to let the hostel now how many visitors are coming so they know how much coffee and tea for during conference they need to provide.

Hope to you see at Warpstock Europe 2015 in Munich.

Please reserve your Warpstock Europe 2015 access before June first!

eComStationNews.com - Wed, 20150527 - 14:04 -0600

The Warpstock Europe announcements, got later of the ground then planned.

* I am sorry to have to say this, but the A&O hostel where not that always that responsive to emails I send.

* The Typo 3 CMS system has been extremely time consuming.

I have asked A&O hostels if I can let people pay the lunch when they arrive that weekend at Warpstock. But the answer was clearly no.

This was part of the reason to also decide NOT to have a volunteer sit behind a table to collect the access fee. As every year somebody would miss out on the presentations.

Also since the event access is cheap. You can book it here:

I have asked A&O hostels if I can supply the reservation information later the 1st of June. But I do not know if I will have an answer quickly...

People who do not have a creditcard. You can in most countries open a Paypal account online and make a deposit in your Paypal account from your bank account.

Warpstock Europe is a conference about the OS/2 operating system, organized by the Dutch OS/2 VOICE foundation.
The conference is being held at the A&O Hostel Munich Laim, in Munich on the 6th and 7th of June. For more information visit
