I also have far more lasting memories of doing fun things in Munich, than at
any other IETF meeting, which also doesn't help the travel budget rationale
I'm sure :-)
It was pretty amusing watching the staff at the Munich Sheraton deal with a
small horde of techno geeks. As I recall, they weren't very pleased with
people turning their lobby into a terminal room for people with roaming-IP
laptops. Of course, people wanted to be in the lobby, since everyone coming
or going to the meeting had to enter through the lobby.
