US SIMs in Seattle airport or Portland downtown

I may need a phone to be able to check in when I arrive tomorrow.  I
have a phone which works on US frequencies.  But I don't have a
suitable SIM.[1]

Where can I buy a SIM ?  I will want to use it for the week and a half
of Debconf, for modest texting and making calls.  Some modest data
capacity would be a bonus.

I will be passing through Seattle airport and Seattle King St railway
station during business hours tomorrow.  I'm due to arrive at Portland
Union Station at 21:20.

Thanks,
Ian.

[1] I had some, but after half an hour on transatlantic hold I
discover they expire them if you don't put any credit on for more than
90 days in a row.

Does anyone bring a Jolla phone to DebConf?

Hi,

I’m playing with the idea of obtaining a Jolla Phone (looks like a nice
shiny hackable and non-mainstream device). So I’m wondering: Does any
DebConf attendee have such a phone? I’d like to see it in real live and
hear about your experiences.

Thanks,
Joachim

Facilities in programme rooms

Hi,

Does anyone know what facilities will be available in the programme 
rooms? Specifically, will whiteboards (and pens!) be available?

Thanks,

Wanted: debianites around Mountain View

Hi!

As I'm boarding my plane to Portland, I've just realised I forgot my jacket at my friend's car in Mountain
View, and I'm surely going to need it. :-(

So, I'm looking for somebody who is going to debconf from MTV or close by, to pick it up.. Any volunteers? 

Thanks!

Re: [Debconf-announce] DebConf event sign-ups: Cheese & Wine, Day Trip

Good afternoon Team,
 
I write to you this opportunity to inform you that unfortunately I can not attend the Dencof14, for reasons beyond my control, as I discuss in previous post, until the last moment I was trying to confirm flights to the city of Oregon in the United States and I could not obtain success in this activity.

Very
grateful for the opportunity and
trust granted for attendance at this event.
I hope for the next event, in my country they may have overcome this crisis and things can be more natural.

I hope to see you at the next event.

Good luck

Jesús Blanco M.

Hi folks,

DebConf14 is fast approaching, and as we get nearer to the date where we
will welcome you all to Portland, Oregon, the finer details start to come
into focus.

We have two events during the week which are DebConf traditions, that we
need you to sign up for *before* arriving at DebConf.


= Cheese and Wine =

First is the traditional cheese & wine party, which will be held the evening
of Monday, August 25th from 7pm to 11:30pm.  Hosting this classic DebConf
event is a challenge in the US, but thanks to one of our generous sponsors,
Puppet Labs, we're able to make it happen again!  The only wrinkle is that,
due to the nature of the event and the venue, you will need to RSVP in
advance.

To sign up for the Cheese and Wine party, tick the "Attend Cheese & Wine
Party" box on the registration form (and then click submit ;):

    https://summit.debconf.org/debconf14/registration/

The deadline for sign-up for the Cheese and Wine party is Wednesday, August
20.

In order to ensure that events they host are safe and fun for everyone,
Puppet Labs requires attendees to agree to a simple code of conduct as a
condition of attending.

    http://docs.puppetlabs.com/community/community_guidelines.html#event-code-of-conduct

We know of course that we can rely on our Debian community to treat others
respectfully, but just to make sure this is clear to everybody, the DebConf
team has published a Code of Conduct of its own which is in effect at all
times during the conference.

    http://debconf.org/codeofconduct.shtml

Please also be aware that the legal drinking age in Oregon is 21, which is
strictly enforced.  While attendees of all ages are welcome at this event,
you must be 21 years or older to participate in the wine tasting.  In order
to ensure you will be able to participate, please bring your ID with you to
the event.  (And feel free to use it for keysigning while there!)


= Day Trip =

Second is the all-important Day Trip - an opportunity for our attendees to
decompress, stretch their limbs, and spend time together for a day /without/
computers.

This year the Day Trip is set for Wednesday, August 27, and will involve a
bus ride into the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
You can read more details about this trip in the DebConf wiki:

    https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf14/DayTrip

If you want to attend this day trip, make sure that you have selected the
"Participate in Day Trip" option, which you can also find on your
registration page.

    https://summit.debconf.org/debconf14/registration/

The deadline for sign-up for this Day Trip is Thursday, August 21.
Similar to last year, one of the options for the day trip is a hike.  Space
is limited for this organized hike; if you would like to go on the hike,
then *in addition to* saying yes to the day trip on your registration page,
you must also add yourself to the sign-up sheet in the wiki page.

    https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf14/DayTrip/Hike

Sign-up for the hike is first-come, first-serve, so if you want to attend,
save your seat now.

And if you have specific handicap or accessibility requirements, you must
inform the registration team no later than August 18 by contacting
registration <at> debconf.org.


= Arrival times =

The conference registration system lets you indicate the time of your
arrival, in addition to the date.  Knowing your precise arrival time at the
conference / at the PSU dorms will help us prepare appropriately for your
arrival.  The URL for conference registration, again, is:

    https://summit.debconf.org/debconf14/registration/

Please consider letting us know what time you expect to arrive.  If you are
arriving by way of Portland International Airport, a good rule of thumb is
to assume 2 hours from your plane's arrival to your arrival at PSU.

Note to sponsored attendees: on the arrival day (Friday, August 22),
check-in begins at 2pm.  As a result, there is no sponsored lunch on this
day; the first sponsored meal is dinner.

For more information on getting to DebConf from the airport, and for other
practical information about your arrival at DebConf, see

    https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf14/Welcome

And if you have any other questions, feel free to ask by writing to
debconf-discuss <at> lists.debconf.org (public list) or to
registration <at> debconf.org.

See you in Porland,
--
The DebConf team

DebConf lists registration reminder

Hi all,

as some of you have noticed already, the various debconf-
* <at> lists.debconf.org lists are moderated for non-subscribed email 
addresses. Given that moderators are humans that happen to not be in 
front of their machine all the time, this manual moderation will 
sometimes impose an unnecessary delay in lively lists conversations.

Given that (at least) debconf-discuss will be quite heavily used during 
DebConf, it is recommended that those who intend to post to that list 
during DebConf subscribe [0] to the list. Please note that it is 
possible to disable email delivery if you don't want to receive the 
lists' conversation on that specific email address or if you read the 
list through other channels. This offers the nice feature of 
whitelisting your address without enforcing email delivery to your 
address.

Enjoy!

Cheers, for the lists moderators,
OdyX

DebConf14 DayTrip - Important Information

Hello, Happy DebConfers!

DebConf in Portland is quickly approaching and we're applying the final
touches on the social event plannings.  You've had information about the
Cheese & Wine Party and some general information about the DayTrip[0].  I'd
like to get you more precise information about the DayTrip now that we have
everything confirmed.

If you are interested in the 3-hour long rigorous hike, you should already
be signed up for a slot on the early bus[1] (to leave at 8am on Wednesday
morning).

For those who aren't leaving on the early bus, we will be leaving Portland
State University at 9:30am Wednesday morning, and also visiting the
beautiful Columbia River Gorge, with stops at Multnomah Falls, Vista House
and Rooster Rock State Park for our picnic lunch.

 * To enjoy everything without overcrowding, we're dividing the "later buses"
   into 2 groups, who will visit the same places, just in reverse order.

 * If you have already indicated you will be joining us on the DayTrip in
   Summit, we know who you are, and we're already planning for you to join
   us.

 * If you will be having people accompany you who are *not* registered in
   Summit, we need to know about them as soon as possible. We don't need
   specific information; a generic "+1" on our RSVP page[2] will suffice.

 * There have been concerns expressed that the later groups will have no
   recreation time. Please take a moment to read more about our History and
   Nature Adventure[2]. Piling people on a bus and not allowing them to
   interact with our beloved gorge was never the intention for this DayTrip.

 * The DayTrip page[0] has information about bus departures and where they
   will be leaving.  We will have more precise information on how to pick up
   your sack lunch closer to the date.

In summary - we're pleased and excited to share this historic and gorgeous
slice of Oregon with everyone. Please make sure we have the information
necessary to make this visit as enjoyable as possible!
