[01:12:13] <jmkasunich> ok, starting to stage stuff
[01:12:31] <jmkasunich> I will be bringing a 16 port ethernet switch
[01:12:43] <jmkasunich> is everybody gonna be bringing a few cat5 cables?
[01:13:56] <cradek> I only found about two, fairly short
[01:14:17] <cradek> but, I only need two
[01:19:59] <jmkasunich> I have three (so far), two are moderately long ~ 25 ft
[01:20:12] <jmkasunich> ISTR I brought a very long one last year, and we needed it to get to the Mazak
[01:20:48] <jmkasunich> found it
[01:20:54] <cradek> worst case, we buy some things we need
[01:21:18] <cradek> bbl
[01:21:45] <jmkasunich> * jmkasunich hates that plan - money is for buying _tools_ dammit
[01:30:11] <jmkasunich> does anybody remember if the ABV rooms had mini-fridges?
[01:30:17] <jmkasunich> (not bloody likely I bet)
[01:30:26] <cradek> I don't think so
[01:30:51] <jmkasunich> I was trying to think of things that would be nice, and a cooler for water, etc was one
[01:31:05] <jmkasunich> a fridge to chill down either ice or a cool-pack would be handy
[01:31:22] <cradek> there's a fridge a 30 second walk away from our area
[01:32:27] <jmkasunich> true, but it will probably be full of other peoples stuff, or the "for sale" beverages
[01:33:13] <jmkasunich> 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
[01:43:12] <skunkworks> If I was coming earlier - I would bring a 1000ft of cat5e and a bag of ends. (and a crimper)
[01:44:20] <jmkasunich> I have a huge roll of what I think is cat5, but no ends
[01:45:35] <skunkworks> if you still need it by thurs - (unlikely I know) I can bring it. Let me know
[01:45:47] <jmkasunich> I think we'll probably be fine
[01:45:59] <jmkasunich> I wonder what ray is planning for his class area
[01:46:07] <jmkasunich> it will be fairly far from the rest of us
[01:46:28] <jmkasunich> does he or Roland have two of those wireless widgets, or will we need to run a cable from pt A to pt B?
[01:46:31] <cradek> he won't need internet
[01:46:39] <cradek> (I'm guessing)
[01:47:01] <cradek> last I heard, he will have a lan though
[01:47:06] <jmkasunich> he's planning on networking the boxes together - even tho he won't need "the internet", he'll need something
[01:47:19] <jmkasunich> I suppose he could do it all with static IPs on each box
[01:47:29] <cradek> sure
[01:47:48] <jmkasunich> dhcp would be nice to allow students to plug in if there are more students than computers
[01:48:19] <cradek> I bet he has it handled...
[01:48:27] <jmkasunich> probably
[01:48:41] <cradek> hm, maybe I should take some clothes.
[02:20:30] <jmkasunich> heh
[02:20:35] <jmkasunich> please do
[03:07:06] <jmkasunich> time to shut it down and pack it up
[03:07:17] <jmkasunich> see y'all in galesburg!
[17:16:06] <alex_joni_> [B/w 2
