The list is alive again and desire transport for Spanish Camp 5 guests

Wow, it looks like we may not have to move the list too soon. We have our hands full with Camp 5 as it is right now. So let's see if python.net stays up for awhile.

We have a couple of Camp 5 guests, Mikel and Nando, coming in from Spain. They have been kind enough to let us know their plane arrives at RDU at 6:24pm on United:


If you would like to pick Mikel and Nando up at RDU and take them to the Hampton Inn (or even help them look around the place and get dinner with them), you would be doing a tremendous service to the Zope community. Since I told Mikel to expect someone wearing a Camp 5 t-shirt, the first loyal TriZPUGer to volunteer for this job and send me their t-shirt size gets a free Camp 5 t-shirt overnighted to them.

Thanks to Mike Revoir for volunteering to do the Camp 5 check-in service at 7:30am Saturday.

Thanks to Steve Cory for volunteering to be the MAC address registration point person. Steve, I'll get you the list of MAC addresses I have soon. As expected, not all MAC addresses are escrowed yet. You know the drill. :)

Camp 5 registration is now closed. We have 64 campers from three continents, 9 sponsored guests from two continents, and 2 special invitation sprinters. This will be the first Zope community conference in the western hemisphere, and only the second in the world after the German DZUG annual conferences.

Thank you for all your hard work.

Re: The list is alive again and desire transport for Spanish Camp 5 guests

Chris,

Assuming you mean their flight arrives at 5:24pm on Friday, I can pick them up.

I wear a 3x large t-shirt (if I'm the first to volunteer). Thanks.

travel plans

TriZPUGers,

You may want to take a look at this:


and see if there are groups of people you'd like to contact for pickup on Friday to go to the Hampton Inn for Camp 5.

There are groups of people coming in Friday so far at these times:

1:15pm
5:10pm
6:10pm
6:24pm
6:45pm
7:10pm
8:28pm
9:35pm
10:35pm

You can look on that wiki page for people coming at a time you'd like to go out to the airport and make a pickup. You can contact that person by clicking on the "people" link at the top of the page, searching on that person's name, and clicking on the "contact this person" link on their page.

Or if you are a camper coming in, you can find people coming in at the same time and share a ride/cab/shuttle.

Or maybe you can figure a better way to do it.

Thanks to fifer for lighting the fire to get people showing their arrival times.

Camp 5 parking

We badly need a volunteer to research comprehensive parking information 
for Camp 5.

This would answer frequent questions like:

1) Where can I park for free?
2) Where can I park on weekends or at night that I can't park during the 
week or during the day?
3) How far is this parking from the classroom?
4) How much does this parking cost?
5) Where is a map with this parking.

And on and on.

This is precipicated by the fact that Swain lot appears closed to 
visitors during weekday hours due to the construction beside Hanes Art 
Center.

The Dogwood Deck at the hospital at $6/day may be the best option.

We need something written up for trizpug.org and the Camp 5 wiki on 
OpenPlans.org.

[Fwd: Short cuts information]

Below is a message from Tatiana Apandi, Python editor at O'Reilly. 
Tatiana is looking for writers of small books, 50 pages ideally, on 
Python related topics for PDF distribution. The "shortcuts" can be 
revised after publication. They are also a good way to write books one 
chapter at a time and have the chapters published as they come out. 
Shortcuts sell for $7-$9 retail on oreilly.com. Contact Tatiana at the 
email address at the bottom of this forward.

Hi Chris,
Here's the info on Short Cuts:
http://www.oreilly.com/store/series/sc.csp
-------------------------------------------------
* Short Cuts are distributed as PDFs, ranging from 30-100 pages with
50 as the ideal.

* Short Cuts will be available through Safari and SafariU.

* Short Cuts should be small enough to be organized internally with
sections, not chapters.

* The contracts for Short Cuts are regular book contracts, with book
royalties and smaller advances.  It's possible to write a series of
Short Cuts and roll them up into a book later.

* Short Cuts content should step beyond what's already available
online.

* Authors can update Short Cuts if they want to - no need to wait for
a new edition.

Best,
Tatiana
