Transbay wi-fi link day
aaron posted in meetings, wifi on December 14th, 2006
Here’s the schedule for MRL this Friday. Most of it is in preparation for the transbay wi-fi connection we’re going to attempt on Saturday Dec 16th. If you’re interested in helping, you know of anyone that has done this already, or know of good locations to try it from, let us know.
Fellow Hackers, Slackers, and Code-crackers: On Friday December 15th at 7pm PST we will be holding our monthly official Midnight Research Labs meeting. In preparation for our trans-bay wi-fi link connection attempt, we'll be watching a video from CCC on establishing long distance wi-fi connections. We'll also finalize the start locations, pick gear and teams for each side of the link. The plan is still to attempt the link on the 16th (Saturday), but at this point it looks like a 50/50 chance that the weather will cooperate (we'll decide one way or the other Friday, and reschedule if necessary). We have our bi-quad antennas to finish up as well. Also making an appearance will be some freshly home brewed beer for those interested (it will be its debut, so I'm not sure how it turned out yet, :). As always, anyone with cool toys, or interesting project ideas, bring them along. Light refreshments, pizza and beer will be served. Agenda: Phase 0x0: Bootstrapping - Greetings and welcome - MRL updates and status - MRL projects update Phase 0x1: Initialization - CCC long distance wi-fi video - bi-quad antennas - beer tasting Phase 0x2: Local exploits - Food - Off topic tools, toys and other shiny things -- If anyone has any interesting to show off or play with, please bring it. - Whatever till whenever -- This is the more social part of the event. People are invited to stay and hack and have a couple drinks till whenever this phase is no longer self-sustaining, =)
