Hi all,

Guido started with a Free Software tournament parallel to the football

  During the last few weeks after the world cup, the idea grew up in me
  to run a parallel tournament to the football championship in Europe
  2012 where the discipline is Free Software usage in Government. This
  idea sounds so much like work, and I have so many other more important
  things to do, that I forced myself to forget about it. Today was the
  first qualifying game for the Euro 2012 and I just decided to give it
  a try nevertheless. We will see how long I will stay on the ball 

- Rules of the game:
- Estonia vs. Faeroe Islands
- preparing for day #2

I am looking forward to more results and participation :)
