hi,<br><br>John Strazzarino had the really good idea of creating a sign up sheet for stuff to bring to the <br><br><a href="http://digitaltippingpoint.com/wiki/index.php?title=St_Anthony_Support_Project#sign_up_to_bring_stuff">
http://digitaltippingpoint.com/wiki/index.php?title=St_Anthony_Support_Project#sign_up_to_bring_stuff</a><br clear="all"><br>here is the tiny URL for that same link:<br><br><a href="http://tinyurl.com/286n4a" target="_blank">
</a><br><br>Please note that I am asking people to register to edit this wiki page, as the DTP has been getting spammed and vandalized a lot recently on pages that we leave completely open. My apologies if this is bothersome. If anyone is sufficiently bothered by it that they won't use it with registration, please let me know, and I will take off the registration. Thanks. Here is the list of stuff that we will need to bring.
<br><ol><li> 9 monitors, must be CRT please, as the boxes we are using will have issues with CRT monitors I think.
</li><li> 9 mice, preferably PS2 optical mice (no USB mice, please);
</li><li> 9 PS2 keyboards (no USB keyboards, please);
</li><li> at least 5 four-port switches (one to split the room, the others to feed the individual boxes);
</li><li> at least 6 six-jack surge protectors;
</li><li> at least 18 AC power cables (9 boxes and monitors)
</li><li> at least 9 ethernet cables, preferably at least 20 feet each,
plus one or two ethernet cables reaching, say, 50 feet (we are going to
have to run an ethernet cable from the wall jack in a different room,
because this room has no ethernet outlet); </li><li> a spindle of say 25 CDs for on-the-spot burning of CDs.
</li><li> 3 torchier lamps. It is pretty important to have lamps that
will direct light upt to the ceiling, as we will be shooting video, and
we don't want to blind the camera by having the light source at eye
level. </li><li> Please feel free to bring your own desktop or notebook set-up, especially if you have an OLPC X0.
</li><li> Also, everyone might want to consider bringing their own
screwdrivers and pliers and whatever other diagnostic / building tools
you think you will need for building boxes.
</li></ol>Thanks again.<br><br>-- <br>Christian Einfeldt,<br>Producer, The Digital Tipping Point
