There was some film about computer graphics and demos shown at the big screen. Unfortunately, being busy with something important like drinking beer or pixeling pixels I didn't really see it. What's the name of this film, and is it possible to find it somewhere?

I agree totally to what Jucke said here. I don't want to complain, just point out how it could be even better (if possible) in the future. I had earplugs saturday night to be able to catch some sleep after the compos (I was going to drive home sunday morning), but I woke up every 15 minutes because my whole body was shaken by the sound level, my brains and eyes were vibrating. Even worse: it was not even datamusic. It was ordinary radio hits. Except from this, the party was teh bestest! You all rule! I am looking forward to every Datastorm in the future, and hope we'll see you all even at Datastorm 2051.

Great party! Awesome people. I wasn't as bothered with the sound levels as others but then again I got my rest at the spa hotel =)

The playlist for the C64 demo show that we held on Friday and Saturday has been posted on our website.

Concerning the sound levels at Datastorm, i must agree with the other visitors. It was out of control this year. Ok, the levels were a little too loud and the treble to sharp during planned events such as compos and demo shows, but thats ok. The problem was thundering soundlevels late at night with drunk people behind the controls. I think when you have such a powerful PA at a party, you must have some restrictions or rules for the usage, otherwise it will always end up like this. I know its really tempting for some who like DJ'ing and music to go up there and blast music on the system when being drunk to get some love and attention, but as a thumb rule you should never let anyone intoxicated handle a soundsystem that big. Its simply dangerous and can damage peoples hearing permanently. I am a DJ myself and i was up there playing music on the system friday night and i noticed that the levels where at least twice as high on the floor as up in the dj booth where iw as standing, and this is because there was no monitors. To hear music good up there you simply have to crank it up to levels that are painful on the floor below. You organizers should really consider this feedback from the guests, and remember that its not really complaints. We care about your party and feel engaged in whats going on, and we trust you guys and love Datastorm. Just be responsible with the PA please. Let it be silent from lets say 3am to 10am and everybody will be really happy. And please remember, with a PA that big, there is NO escape from the sound. If you cant take it you have to leave the building. Even when i had earplugs on trying to sleep the bass was so strong it made my eyeballs vibrate in the sockets of my head, not to speak about the walls and tables and things around me thumping along with the bass frequencies. You either have someone responsible for the sound or you install the two monitors into the booth and the problem is gone. It would be so sad if people stopped showing up because of something trivial as soundlevels.

Thanks for a great party! I really like the more social focus of this event rather than everybody hacking away at their computers. It was really nice meeting people I haven't seen in many years as well. Hell, even the trainride to Gothenburg was enjoyable. And thanks for the cigarillos!

Thanks for a nice party.

I'll chime in - the sound was much too loud in many many occasions during the weekend.
Not even earplugs combined with headphones could reduce the noise to an acceptable level.
And why keep on playing until 5 o'clock sunday morning ? - at that point only 2-3 people was still up.

Another thing - I know that you want to keep the room cosy - but it needs some light in order to keep people productive. Please remember that original Commodore equipment does not have backlit keyboards - a little more light would do good. At least I'll make sure to bring my own light "gear" next year :-)

Great arrangement (except some havoc on the PA out of compos :), party place and people!

I spent most of the party down on the floor, and the only time I found it too loud was when they were playing Amiga music - the high frequencies had a real nasty bite. Loudness varies quite a bit in the room though, and we tried to adjust it to a loud but not uncomfortable level. Please tell us at the party though so we can check and adjust.

The party was really nice, food was great, plenty of toilets, but I gotta agree that the sound would've needed a bit of tweaking on the higher frequencies.

Or was the sound tweaked while using earplugs? :)

I'm pretty sure they sold earplugs in the bar :) (EDIT: in reply to Zyron's comment about not being able to sleep, not the unintended loudness).

The party was awesome but the volume was much too loud, especially on early Sunday morning when most people wanted to sleep.

Very nice party once again!

Edit: I agree with Zyron. The sound was much too loud (at least for my ears), a bit like the first Datastorm, as opposed to last year's datastorm where the sound level was much more bearable. I think part of the "problem" might be that the sound is substantially less loud when you're up there in the DJ booth, which is also where the volume is controlled. Now I really don't want to complain — the party was really good in all respects so from that point of view this is really just a detail — and if you actually want to have sound that loud, then I guess one could consider this at least partly a difference in taste. I certainly might not have the average party visitor's ears, due to my hearing impairment, but at some occasions I actually even considered leaving the party and go back to Lund, due to the loudness. (But I didn't want to leave, of course, since I was having such a good time in all other respects.) I also heard a whole bunch of people saying things like "phew... damn.. it is LOUD in there!" when they were out smoking and such, so maybe it is something to consider at least.

Just came back from Datastorm and feel like I have been run over by a train and then raped by zombies, so I must take the opportunity to thank the organizers for another smellyfresh rocksolidchaotic manboobsmacking storm of data that teleported me to tarnow and back. You guys sure know how to deliver the scenario for the real down the buttcrack wildlife data experience.
