HAR2009: day 4 and 5

Day 4 went by fast. Lots of people arriving, busy exchanging tickets for wristbands. Lots of deliveries, some very cool stuff (for example 15km of IPv6 compatible UTP, and the har water) and useful gear. Today (day 5) the core routers arrived. Network is making rapid progress: fiber has been rolled out from the KPN shed all the way to the NOC cabin. Some splicing still remains.

Have been twittering like mad on the HAR2009 twitter feed, trying to catch the most noteworthy moments (and doubtless failing, missing a lot of the cool stuff). Hope the ppl at home like it though. Today, the porto’s were handed out. The endless pointless discussions on IRC translate well to the ether.

Tomorrow, the first beginnings of the power grid will be laid out, with the generators arriving. Hopefully at the end of the day I can plug in some UTP in the noc cabin, and catch up on my email. I doubt that there’ll be time for that though.

My personal hi-lite of the day: claiming a bike! No more feet-killing circuits around the terrain!

Anyway, it’s late. I’m signing off. Thanks for listening.

    Great stuff. Operating as the most forward outpost into HAR2009 territory, from day 1 on. Keeping a close eye on any pictures that may occur, things are looking great indeed. See you all on wednesday!

    Oh, and don’t forget “bandenplaksel”. Would be a shame to have a bike that’s not operable.
