Maybe we could ask someone to lend us a laptop for this event and avoid
this expense. fauno, could you looking for someone that could help us on
it in CABA?

Some hours ago, i had a idea to avoid this expensive ticket since i have
relatives living in Santana do Livramento (a city in the state of Rio
Grande do Sul in Brazil).
That city is located in the same state than Porto Alegre where FISL
takes place every year, also Santana do Livramento is along the border
with the city of Rivera, Uruguay.
My recent suggestion is pay just national tickets with stopover
(Montevideo/Rivera in Uruguay and Santana do Livramento/Porto Alegre in
Brazil), so we could avoid pay international taxes trying to keep reduce
expenditure to a minimum (USD 96 in comparison to USD 167).
In that stopover interval, i could stay in my relative's house until the
next trip (Santana do Livramento to Porto Alegre).

I found a link about a hosting guide that was posted for FISL16 [0]. It
could be useful get info to reduce expenditure in hosting (eg. if there
aren't gratis places available to stay, Lido Hotel [1] is a good option
since it costs around USD 30 daily, then USD 150 is enough thought).

Therefore, it's the updated table with expenses and descriptions to be
considered to reach a better consensus, what do you think?

Description				| Currency	| Amount
ThinkPad T61				| USD		| borrowed
Round trip ticket			| USD		| 96 [2][3]
Payments concerning the travel		| USD		| 150
Stand to sponsoring FISL		| USD		| ?
