Good MORNING! Yes, Sunday Morning... which most people sleep through due to the events of Saturday night. Here at DefConNetworking, we understand. Ugh, we understand!

But last night was awesome - the Ninja's threw a blow-out party - it was awesome! Many thanks to Barkode & all the Ninja Networks guys for taking care of people. I was really pleased to see a number of DefCon newbies at the party, too. They were having a blast, and I would say it was a huge success.

But back to the network - things have been humming away. We've heard some people still having a hard time keeping stable wifi connections - we'll keep working on that. It's an issue that some devices/OS's have, having a hard time deciding which AP to connect to, because they were so many around. We understand it's frustrating and we'll see if we can work on that for next year. It's a balance between coverage and capacity (clients/AP).

Meanwhile, we've peaked bandwidth at 60Mb yesterday morning (5-min average), and even hit 54Mb this morning! Perhaps people are grabbing all the torrents they can while they can?

We're glad to see a higher simultaneous client attach rate this year - up almost 40% over last year. We'll gather more facts/stats for the closing ceremonies and post those afterwards.

Enjoy your Sunday!
