So apparently HOPE X is next weekend -- what's everyone's plans for getting down to NYC?

On Friday?

On Friday?

We should have exchanged phone #'s. There will be ~6 other people I know there. We usually use text to communicate. There is HOPE wifi. But, it has been flaky in past years. THey kind of just strap routers to columns.

Well, I'll introduce you to the guys. Some times we all go out to lunch at a place up the street if you're interested.
And there is a nice pub across 33rd with 40+ taps. We'll have to grab a pint.

Well, you have my email address if you'd like to send me your #. Else we'll find some other way to find each other and say hello.

No cell phone, just a land

No cell phone, just a land line. I'll be hanging around with the vintage computer crowd (MARCH) some, so look for me there if you can't find me. I'll leave a tmux session connected to #nycap2600 as well.

If you guys are on the 0655 to NYC on Friday, I'll probably catch you on the platform!

No phone, you luddite! :P

No phone, you luddite! :P

No, like I said above we're leaving tomorrow. Thursday, around noon. (as last time we got there too early. Hotel check in isn't till 3pm and we had the luggage with us for hours.)

I'm not in nycap2600 IRC as the SSL messes with my Irssi config. Though I never tried getting into it from the phone (I'll try that.) I mostly hang out on Freenode in our LUG's IRC and some podcast channels.

Worst case, we could set up a temp Freenode channel for the weekend.

Pf, hotel rooms? Luggage? One

Pf, hotel rooms? Luggage? One bag, sleep in the hammocks! Bum showers as necessary.

We can use #albany2600 on irc.binrev.net -- fast, not a huge amount of traffic, SSL config isn't broken, and I have access to the box it runs on.

I don't think my wife would

I don't think my wife would go for the hammocks. :P

She is coming down. Not for HOPE, but shopping.

I'm trying to set Yaaic up to use irc.2600.net (on the phone). It works, but it doesn't seem to disconnect cleanly. Probably the SSL again. I have to force close Yaaic in between log in's. I'll try logging into irc.binrev.net #albany2600 in Irssi.
