Cape Town, Eastern Food Bazaar and Open Access

Hi all,

Are there any debconf-stragglers who are still residing in Cape Town.
If yes, there is a smallish favor I have to ask of you. If any of you
in the next few days, were to go near/around Longmarket Street there
is a place called Eastern Food Bazaar

http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4218894207
https://www.google.com/maps/ <at> -33.9246356,18.422202,21z

If you can, could you please take a snap of the hoarding of the
Eastern Food Bazaar. It is a confluence place as you have Indian,
Lebanese, Halal and couple of other cuisines which make it a cool
joint. Apart from that, they have heavy portions, I was not able to
finish even one of them.

Then, if you are in the vicinity of the Bazaar, the restaurant, just
couple of steps going towards the observatory there is a
grate/manhole/inspection cover by the name of 'Open Access' with logo
of Open Access. I also did see that there is a van with the same name
and access which I'm sharing as well but it didn't come out well :(

This bit is a bit more important as we in India want to have something
similar and has been talked to death in India but no movement has
happened on the ground.

If it's not possible, even if somebody could get me the correct URL
for the open access utility network provider.  I could ask the Open
Access people themselves and they could send me a pictures/photographs
of the same and maybe answer couple of questions as well.

where to upload presentation slides for talks given ?

Hi all,

I gave an on-the-fly presentation in the recent debconf held at
Debconf, Cape Town, South Africa.

I got some feedback stating that for some people (especially
non-native english speakers) it isn't/wasn't easy to piece the story I
am/was sharing at that time.

http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2016/debconf16/My_Experience_with_Debian.webm

Hence for better understanding/accessibility have decided to make a
presentation which gets the facts right. In shooting from the hip I
did get little information wrong hence trying to put it right via
uploading the presentation. Can anybody tell/share who's the right
person to connect to for the above.

Looking forward to know.

PSA: work-around for South African Airways online check-in issues

Hi,

if you (i) fly with South African, (ii) want to check-in online, (iii)
are on the DebConf16 wlan and (iv) are not getting a connection to
flysaa.com, then:

use the wired ethernet in the dorm rooms (every room should have one
AFAIK), it works from there.

Thanks to Judit Foglszinger (urbec) for pointing it out to me.

Cheers,

Michael

Ideas for you travel back home

Many of you are going to suffer from long waiting times and flaky internet connectivity or none at all while traveling back home. How about downloading some of the video talks while you are here to watch them offline? Do it now so you wont forget later!! [0]

Thanks to the video team, this is feasible very early this year!
 
If there's a particular video that you enjoy, you might consider subtitling it afterwards or while you watch it. Subtitling basically includes transcribing what you hear to a text file, which can be then sync with the video afterwards.
 
There are many videos and few people doing subtiling, so it is unlikely to step over the work of somebody else, but if  you consider doing some subtitling work, read our quickie debconf 2016 [1]
 
Give us a holler in IRC [2] to check first if you dont want to risk it or head to our wiki [3] for tricks around offline subtitling or to get a lock on a particular file if you really want to make sure nobody is already working on that.

Thanks and enjoy the rest of debconf 2016!

Airtime voucher for Vodacom

Hi,

I still have an R110 Vodacom voucher that I didn't use because the SIM
did not fit my mobile. If someone stays longer in South Africa or has
otherwise use for it, I'm happy to give it away for R50.

Kind regards

Make your own BDale Costume: Friday afternoon

Hi all!

If you've always harboured a secret ambition to dress like BDale, now's your
chance!  We've got some fabric dyes coming, and we're doing to tie-dye some
stuff on Friday afternoon.  Bring garments you'd like to dye (make sure
they're a) light-coloured for best visibility, and b) clean!).  If you have
no suitable garments, please head to https://titanpad.com/plainwhiteshirts
to request a t-shirt.  More concrete details to follow; watch this space.
