just a stupid question: Does the said Tour & Taxis room has internet
access? I guess that yes but I just have to be sure. Furthermore, how
big is it ?
To get an idea, which number of people could I expect from the iRail

who would like to join (notably, Jonathan Van Parijs, from
HackDemocracy who I did the G1000 website with).
