18 and the joy of being part of our community and could consist of
19 workshops, talks, or bug squashing parties both virtual and in real life.

30 a <a href="http://wiki.debian.org/HostingBSP">bug squashing party</a>, or simply
31 bring a <a href="http://happybirthday.dug.net.pl/">Debian cake</a> and some drinks!
