In order for the Thurs-Fri hackathon to come off well, we need to  
clarify some questions concerning wireless net access:

1.  What is its status in the room in the Multipurpose room in  
Oberholtzer Hall?  Will we be using a UH wireless network directly?   
Or will we have to plug an access point into the wired circuit and  
broadcast the signal ourselves?

2.  Will we need UH logins in order to get online?  If so, will that  
be the named login and password that dorm residents (at least) got  
when checking in?  And will those logins still be valid on Thursday  
and Friday?  Or will we be "UHGuest"s?

3.  In the conference center, setting up our own access points has  
been invaluable in terms of providing SMTP, ssh and IRC, none of  
which are directly available on the wired access here in the dorms.   
Will we be able to set that up in Oberholtzer?  If so, of people who  
will be around Thursday and Friday, who has the equipment and who has  
the know-how?

Thank you very much.
