Lee was in the channel when I got online. Rich was in the room with him and Random, then came up to our room for a bit when he saw we were awake. Random said that she could get a wireless signal in the lobby, so apparently it's not limited to just the rooms as we originally thought.
Just came downstairs to the lobby to register for the con. Brought the laptop with me. We do indeed have a signal, and I'm making this entry from the lobby.
Ran into Gord while I was getting registered, and Random showed up shortly thereafter. Lyssie and Gord went to the dealer's room, and Random disappeared. Ran into the other Tom Kelly at the registration desk.
After I got registered I sat down to write this entry. Waiting to see if anyone else shows up.
Gonna browse the schedule now, see if there's anything I might be interested in seeing.
After coming back, we went into the con suite, from where I am now posting this entry. Rich came down with his laptop, and is now in the process of trying to get his laptop to recognize the wireless.
Incidentally, there's a wireless signal in the room so I may try to shoutcast or webcam the meeting.
I shoutcasted the meeting to several people in DWC. Unfortunately I used the internal mic on my laptop (I sort of set it up rather hurriedly) which didn't produce really good sound quality. It's somewhat intelligable in some places and incoherent in others. The fact that it worked over the wireless link is minorly amazing.
Immediately after was opening ceremonies. Shaun introduced Colin Baker and Peter Davison, who came up to the stage to say a few words, and also introduced a bunch of other people; book authors, audio episode producers, and others.
After that I came back up to the room to check in and offload pictures. I also needed to recharge the laptop, and drop off a tape that was given to me to give to Pete. I've been collecting a lot of stuff for him at this con...
Most of the other people are at the masquerade, but I'm not particularly interested in it, and I needed to sit back and relax for a few.
