First post! ZOMFG! l33t!
This post is officially made from the DefCon 19 Network!
The core is up and working. A couple IDF's still have to be patched. Wall ports & floor jacks are mostly patched by the hotel, just need to be patched panel-to-switch in the IDF's. The last of the AP's are being provisioned right now by Luiz & Erick (he's new this year, say hi to him!). The NOC is up & functional!
What's really most exciting for us right now is that we are at least 36 hrs ahead of schedule right now! Some of the IT guys were around and, even though they didn't expect us to be working setup today, stuck around and helped us get stuff done! I think we may owe them a beer or two.
Public wireless will come online throughout this week; the Hotel has to hang AP's as space is available in all the conventions spaces - Right now there's the CHART group
(Council of Hotel and Restaurant Trainers) and EVO 2011
(a gaming con) in here. The gamers are very DefCon-esque: They were stealing chairs from the CHART rooms, a train of gamers carrying charts across hallways.
