The sys admin’s daily grind: LUG Camp Tschierv

LUG High

He nearly missed this year’s LUG Camp, but what was columnist Charly supposed to do instead – celebrate Father’s Day?

Ascension Day is the day on which men in Germany meet up with their friends, hike cross-country, drink beer, and sing quaint German folk songs (out of tune). This isn’t my idea of a good time. I prefer to meet up with my friends, hike cross-country, drink beer, and sing heavy metal oldies (out of tune). Luckily, these activities feature in the central LUG Camp program, which just happens to start on Ascension Day.

This time LUG Camp was in Tschierv, Switzerland, in Val Müstair to be more precise. My image of a Val (= valley) up to now has been something at about sea level that fills up with water when it rains. At least that’s what it’s like here in the Lower Rhine area, where you can easily identify the 100-meter remains of an ice-age moraine at a distance of 50 kilometers (about 30 miles).
