May Day in Finland...

Tuomas Pystynen had organised a splendid one-day conference in "Corona Baari" in Helsinki on Monday the 30th of April.

Speakers included Heikki (the guy behind InnoDB which was bought by Oracle), the DUDE-guy Kurt, the always crazy Piet de Visser, Michael Möller of Miracle and other good people.

Guests included Scary Hairy Ari, world-famous for his quote from the last Miracle Database Forum in Lalandia: "I think I need to find Finland" and about 40 other good people.

After the conference, we walked around a bit before having dinner in a Russian restaurant with - you guessed it - a few glasses of vodka and other niceties.

The next day, Tuesday, was the 1st of May and a beautiful day with blue skies and not-too-cold weather. Everyone who had ever graduated with a "student exam" or a "polytechnical exam" were wearing their traditional student caps while having champagne and other liquids in a nice park.

Tuomas had arranged for lunch in a very nice traditional restaurant called Cosmos where a female accordion player made a lasting impression on us.

And then home to Copenhagen Tuesday night. Tired, but happy about the whole thing.

Tuomas used the occasion (it was 10 years to the day since he started his own company Deepbase) to announce that he is starting up Miracle Finland Oy.

That should work!

I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches c9 gold, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away c9 online gold, Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there buy c9 gold.

Your future depends on your dreams. So go to sleep Diablo 3 Gold, he time of life is short ; to spend that shortness basely, it would be too long C9 Gold, It's great to be great, but it's greater to be human C9 Gold Sale. People who are serious about the relation are moody as they have devoted a lot that makes them worry about gains and losses.
