ok, starting to stage stuff
I will be bringing a 16 port ethernet switch
is everybody gonna be bringing a few cat5 cables?
I only found about two, fairly short
but, I only need two
I have three (so far), two are moderately long ~ 25 ft
ISTR I brought a very long one last year, and we needed it to get to the Mazak
worst case, we buy some things we need
* jmkasunich hates that plan - money is for buying _tools_ dammit
does anybody remember if the ABV rooms had mini-fridges?
(not bloody likely I bet)
I don't think so
I was trying to think of things that would be nice, and a cooler for water, etc was one
a fridge to chill down either ice or a cool-pack would be handy
there's a fridge a 30 second walk away from our area
true, but it will probably be full of other peoples stuff, or the "for sale" beverages
I have a small (six-pack size) cooler that I'll probably bring, if only for the drive - an apple and a bottle of cold water
If I was coming earlier - I would bring a 1000ft of cat5e and a bag of ends. (and a crimper)
I have a huge roll of what I think is cat5, but no ends
if you still need it by thurs - (unlikely I know) I can bring it. Let me know
I think we'll probably be fine
I wonder what ray is planning for his class area
it will be fairly far from the rest of us
does he or Roland have two of those wireless widgets, or will we need to run a cable from pt A to pt B?
he won't need internet
last I heard, he will have a lan though
he's planning on networking the boxes together - even tho he won't need "the internet", he'll need something
I suppose he could do it all with static IPs on each box
dhcp would be nice to allow students to plug in if there are more students than computers
I bet he has it handled...
hm, maybe I should take some clothes.
time to shut it down and pack it up
see y'all in galesburg!
how was the drive?
