"Now that slightly more than half of the hackathon people have arrived in Calgary, and people are starting to work on their various projects, I thought it would be nice to let some people know what's going on.

We have two rooms setup where we are hacking in a Calgary hotel. One smaller room is for noisy large machines, the larger room is starting to get crowded already..."

The full message can be found at

Good luck boys [and girls, ed.], have a nice hackathon." Commits are starting to roll in, a few big things have started, including an update of the Kerberos V codebase and some userland X11 DRI handling. Anyone have any pictures? Hopefully we'll have a writeup post hackathon of the accomplishments.

    That Theo said don't ask for pictures we've got better things to do, and then the post asked if people had pictures. --hehe

    I'd also like to read about some of the details on how they set up their temporary network. In the link provided, Theo mentions that the networks are hooked up to a 6mbit wireless network and then back to his home. How are clients authenticating with the wireless AP, encrypting data, etc?

    I know it's besides the point and would probably be viewed as a waste of their time while at the event, but it would be nice if someone would describe the network infrastructure after the dust has settled.

      I'd use IPSec/firewalling/arp-proxy/static-arp-entry, actually, I do at home.

      I'm not too worried, that way. :-)

          1. By Anonymous Coward () on

            I purchase 50 cds every 2 weeks!

            1. By Anonymous Coward () on

              Well, I buy every old CD set available along with the new release every 6 months....

              *cough* nose grows longer

                No, the project wins. Shut up the both of you. :-)

              People used to buy MicroBSD CD sets thirty five years ago !

              1. By technofiend () on

                In Soviet Russia, CD buys YOU!

                (OK, couldn't resist).

            How often do you get laid? Is it reciprocal?

    2. By Anonymous Coward () on

      the last i heard of it on the mailinglists was that the developers themselves put the missing cash into planetickets and hotelrooms..

      1. By Anonymous Coward () on

        Well, it would be nice if everybody would go and buy a CD, Poster, TShirt or donate some money this week to try and offset that cost a little. Maybe help the guys get some of their money back. They are after all making something that we all get for 'free.'
