My company is providing the tech support for OSCON again this year.   
Unfortunately the exhibit hall space is tightly managed by the venue  
(it's the first OSCON in a bona-fide convention center), so I can't  
promise free connectivity.

However, it'll be good to say "Hi Hawaya" and offer whatever help I  
can onsite.


(And FWIW, NetBSD has *always* been present at OSCON, on the back- 
end...  I've made sure of that.)
