Just like about every year…
We’re going with at least 8 people from #eth0, so that should be quite entertaining.
HAR2009, the four-yearly Dutch outdoor technology-conference has published the Call for Papers. I’ll include it verbatim here:
From the ancient days long before the first wayback-machine snapshot, hackers have a track record for appropriating technology that was meant for something completely different and putting it to alternative uses. And every four years since 1989, the international hacker community has descended upon The Netherlands in great numbers for a conference that focuses on contemporary and future issues surrounding technology and its social and political consequences. One reason that these conferences have been successful is the wide range of participants: from students, amateurs and aficionados to researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs who are recognized as some of the best in their respective fields.

There doesn’t seem to be any official WiFi here that’s free to use, so I have been using Iodyne dns tunnels, and I’m not using an event accesspoint that’s put up by the GUUG guys.
My hotel only has paid wifi as well, but I couldn’t get Iodine working there. I did notice that ping traffic is allowed and let trough, so I’ve setup a ping tunnel now, using icmptx, which I’ll be testing tonight, when I’m back at the hotel.
Yesterday evening after I arrived in Hamburg I walked around town a bit, looking for a nice bar to have a drink… There aren’t too many near the reeperbahn (mostly just private clubs, sex joints and hookers…) but I finally found a nice Irish bar, with an unhealthy supply of Guinness and Murphy’s
Update: I was back at the hotel, and the pingtunnel (icmptx) works over wayport wifi 😉 I also got the gifts I wanted to buy today 🙂
Hope to meet some old friends there, and maybe get time to release a new proxytunnel version (as the last fosdems also spawned new releases, and I’ve got some patches prepared)
Hope to see you there… the beer is great
The vacations are over, the conferences are starting again… This weekend is EuroBSDCon in Denmark (which I won’t be attending :(, but a group of snow colleages is going). I will be visiting the Dutch nl.linux.org Open Source BBQ which is also this weekend (saturday to be exact).
Next month (October 13+14) brings us the 2nd edition of T-Dose, which I’d like to visit this year.
After that it’s time again for the NLUUG conference, November 7th in Amsterdam (new location), which will celebrate 25 years of NLUUG history. And before you know it we’re back at the next CCC conference (late December) and Fosdem (late February)
