what you need or read more about us, who we are what we do, how you
can join - and work together with us. We don't have to write discs, we
would be able share installers/info/services through this.
Similarily, if you are an ambassador, maybe you can request/build by
your own this box, when you receive it, loaded with the latest images
- you can fire up the release party, and anyone who needs it can
receive his/her installer, marketing tools, or whatnot through the box
2nd use case: At event a team wants to share, or cooperate together
without messing with the local network - instead using this box AP
It has been years since I have done booth duty and worked with the mess
of lots of SSIDs all on the same channel.
In the FWIW column, figure out how to do this over the booth's main
SSID, not a separate one and cause visitors / booth members even more
Remember that a separate SSID on a busy channel does not make for better
throughput. A busy channel is just that a, busy channel.
I greatly value all of you Fedora developers doing things I cannot; I
benefit from your work. But I am a long time standards guy in IEEE 802
and really get beaten into me the limit of physics and RF...
witch gives you team tools, eg. etherpad, chat, logging, and
that can be necessary. If its about packaging, translation, or such
how cool would be to have all those tools locally, and share between
them to who are joining.
I thought on something this - and for me Kodi looking a pretty good
candidate to this, as it has nodejs support, and more....
