Almost all computers here are on a single mug network, which is
connected to the Internet (with the possible exception of one or
two partner alien universes).
MUG '98 machines
Machines are labeled with their hostname and function.
The central "docking" table in the breakout room has a
number of 10baseT connectors for your laptops.
One username "mug" (password "coffee")
Do personal work in mug/yourname subdirectories
If a machine looks available, use it! Exceptions are:
user machines on the "docking" table
Origin server (no proper screen anyway)
Enterprise server (no mug login)
June's administrative Mac (OK with permission)
If a machine looks logged out, feel free to log in as mug/coffee
... it should come up ready-to-go, use it!
If you need to do anything special (load a tape, ftp something out,
compile a program, get a network address, reconfigure the kernel),
please see one of the Daylight staff
(Jeremy Yang and Roger Critchlow are particularly appropriate).
Feel free to telnet home and check your mail, but:
don't send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (we won't get it)
don't expect to receive mail here (use replyto:)
don't excessively tie up the show machines reading e-mail if
others are waiting to use them for demos, etc. (This doesn't apply
to your own docked laptops: if you have one, knock yourself out.)
Speakers and listeners
We're really jam-packed with great papers this year.
It's gonna be so much fun!
But this means that speakers will really need to limit themselves
to their allotted time, typically 30 min total for the
presentation and questions. A timer will be provided, use it!
We have 40-odd presentations this year which address a wide variety
of topics. On one hand, there should be something for everyone.
On the other hand, not everyone will be interested in every single
presentation. Feel free to attend the sessions you are interested
in and do other things at other times. While sessions are in
progress, the breakout room and the DeVargas room provide
comfortable and appropriate places for demo and discussion.
Speakers, if you have special requirements, please let us know!
Pretty much anything except mic/PA and O/H projectors (w/ and w/o
computer screen) counts as "special". HTML "slides" are strongly
preferred. We can probably accomodate your needs, but we need to
know about them. Contact Dave, Jeremy, or Roger C. as first choices.
