  • The ticket/ticket number/PTN-card. We say this every year, and every year hundreds of people forget their ticket. Do not leave home without it or you may end up spending this Easter on the streets of Hamar. A mighty cold pleasure we might add.
  • Valid identification (All official ID-cards, like ATM-cards/driver licence/passports etc. may be used on The Gathering 2008's ticket control.
  • Your beloved computer.
  • A (minimum) 5 meter TP (Twisted Pair) network cable.
  • Power cable, sound cables, monitor cable, power pad.
  • A mouse and, for those who can't live without it, a mouse pad.
  • Headphones.
  • Network card that supports TP.
  • Tooth brush, shaving equipment, soap, and deodorant.
  • Towels. Drying off with your t-shirt is hell.
  • Clean clothes, two or three sets.
  • Socks in all shapes and colors, especially the warm ones.
  • A bag or two to have the dirty laundry in.
  • Food. We recommend that you buy some sliced bread + things to have on it. Food will be sold at the party, but living on those torched lumps of meat might be a bit expensive in the long run.
  • Stuff to drink! We highly recommend water - it's good for you!
  • An Easter-egg filled with your favorite sweets. It's a holiday, and sugar is of the essence.
  • Money, money and more money! This is very important! And no, we will not lend you any.
  • Cellular phone, so you can call your mom every time you feel a bit homesick.
  • Sleeping bag, mattress, pillow.

  • Pen and paper.
  • A camera, because no one will believe you when you say that you've been to the second largest computer party in the world.
  • Magazines/books. Nice to have on the journey to and from Planet XYZ.
  • Picture ID, driver’s license, ATM-card
  • Sanitary pads and tampons (if you are female)
  • Condoms/birth control. However, we do not recommend carnal pleasures in public areas as they are very crowded.
