Hi Haskell Hackers!

There are only 4 days left until the fourth Hackathon (http:// 
www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac4) at Chalmers University in  
Gothenburg, Sweden.

If you haven't registered, yet, please do so now!

     Registration deadline:  Tuesday, April 8, 2008

To register, go to http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac4/Register  
and follow the steps.

For all those already registered, here's a short (not nearly  
complete) checklist:

* Make sure you have an account on code.haskell.org.  (See http:// 
www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac4/Projects for how to do that.)

* Decide what to work on if you haven't yet.  (See http:// 
www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Hac4/Projects for ideas.)

* Make sure your laptop is working and that you take all required  
extra equipment.  (If your wireless driver sucks, we can probably  
find some cables and a switch here.)

* It would be good to have all the code you want to work on already  
on your computer.  Also make sure it builds with your compiler  
version.  If your distro doesn't have binaries, maybe install some  
software in advance, like Gobby or profiled versions of GHC, newest  
version of gtk2hs or whatever seems appropriate.  It would just be a  
shame to waste hours of precious hacking time.

* Make a backup.  Just in case. ;)

* Many hostels want a confirmation a few days before arrival, don't  

* If you need some phone numbers of locals, check the wiki site, if  
you need some more help from us locals, you can ask us at our IRC  
channel #haskell-hac4.

We're looking forward to a fun weekend!
