Technology update

Last night, when setting up the rambling shambles that is ChaosCentral, we noticed that there was almost no mobile phone signal at the venue.  As we now travel with a range of devices, we tried out Telstra, Optus and VodaFail all of whom had either one bar of signal - or none!  Walking outside the venue onto the street provided a good signal for all  three.  What to do?

Well, Liz Gregory and the Rex Hotel came to the rescue and provided free and unlimited access to the hotel wireless.  Without that access, this feis would have no LiveCam nor LiveCommentary - thanks Liz and Jackie for organising the IT guy late last night :)
