Hectic times ahead

This weekend is going to be the last time to get some decent relaxation for a while. Next weekend starts busy - there's a C++ Standards panel meeting in Oxford on Saturday afternoon, then simonb and ottah have invited us that evening, then we have a 07:00 flight from Luton on Sunday, and then we have to be up and out on the streets by 04:00 on Monday for the parade at the start of Fasnacht in Basel.

Fasnacht is quite something - and after 72 hours of nearly non-stop carnival (with all the old subversive values that the ability to hide behind a mask means), you really want to sleep for the following week.
