Connected at last! [HAR 2009]


Yesterday I left my home around 8 am, and today around 3 pm I was finally connected to the grid at HAR 2009. During the previous three editions of this Dutch hacker camp (spanning 12 years), I had stayed at somebody else’s tent, and had relied on my host to make sure power, Internet and beer ran right up to two metres from my bed. This year my host couldn’t make it, and I suddenly realized that hooking up all these necessities (except the beer: I’ll live) takes actual work. With the help of Orangemaster as a sort of phone-based TomTom for locating missing cables I eventually succeeded.

The invisible fellow below kept watch over the camp yesterday. The next morning he was gone. Maker: unknown.

    That seems to be somebody from the Pirate Bay, Arjen Kamphuis looks different.
