Roll Call: Them
- Pick location for next weekly
- Third time the charm? This time we have pre-arranged (AND CONFIRMED, we got stood up last time) to rendezvous with the property manager to supervise roof access. Primary agenda is to get on the Mississippi Ballroom roof and see if we can repoint or relocate the backhaul antenna to restore connectivity to the Ballroom location. Russell will bring a Bullet M5HP and a 24 dBi panel antenna (and, hopefully, a battery/poe rig) to wave around for testing. Will maybe chat a bit, until perhaps 7pm, before leaving for the Ballroom building at Shaver and Mississippi (a few blocks north of Stormbreaker). Please arrive by 7pm or be prepared to contact Russell to coordinate rendezvous.
- Discuss the viability of VPN backhauling all node traffic to a rented Virtual Server in the cloud somewhere, at least optionally. Discussions with our mesh nerd guests implies that this may be a significant obstacle for potential node hosts. Perhaps we can do it as a $$ add-on service, that the participants share the costs for.
- Discuss the response we got at OSBridge: approximately 20 hands went up when I asked who would be willing to share their internet, it will be interesting how many of those follow through.
