Sorry I wasn't able to keep it open much past 5, they shut me down :-(
If you didn't get your badge during will-call you will be able to get it in PC room on Friday.

Also, what if we have a large computer that needs to come in through the docks anyway?

Yeah it's called LANfest not Internetfest. Asking as the intel servers works that fine I had so much playing tf2 prop hunt and medieval. Stop complaint about getting onto servers that aren't on the LAN

We should have our own room separate from freeplay.

Oh god, please. A room other than the expo hall next year. The blindfolded FPS was a nightmare because while my partner would be giving me directions, all the guys over at the Riot booth would be shouting and cheering leaving me unable to hear my partner. Im also sure you've heard it enough but please sort out the network issues for the next BYOC.
Hey, what was the reason that BYOC entry was bumped to 10:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday? It was to my understanding that it was open from 8 onwards. The guys around me in BYOC said that it was likely because 8 AM was for checkin only on friday, but with the amount of people other than myself waiting for BYOC on saturday that seems unlikely. Along with that, any idea why the vending machine was removed?
Also, good work enforcers! BigRed, you were a huge help. I had alot of questions and such that you were able to help answer when Enforcers redirected me to you.
That was my first BYOC and I had a blast! I'll definitely be on the lookout for registration for 2013's BYOC.

- As for RFID's, would that really help? I think they're mostly helpful when robots are doing the scanning. If a human being has to visually confirm everything, you're subject to pretty much the same bottlenecks. I might have just had good timing, but I didn't notice any logjams getting into or out of security, thus RFID's might add extra cost with little benefit. RFID wouldn't solve the laptop in a bag issue anyway. Plenty of bags don't have laptops, thus most bags will still enter and leave the area willy nilly. And if someone did want to steal a laptop, I'm sure they'd remove the RFID tag before sneaking it out, so, again, problem not solved.

However, room different than expo? Yes please. That shit was too fucking loud.

I'm not sure you're understanding what RFIDs are, or how they are used for loss-prevention? They are a passive radio frequency (hey, RF) technology. You put tags or labels on/in the PC equipment that is checked in to the BYOC. You place some of the antennas that I posted earlier around the exits. If anyone tries to leave with an RFID-tagged item (like a laptop in a bag) it will, ostensibly, set off the alarm. At that point, hopefully, the [E]s could compel the person to reveal any pilfered items. Like I said before, since anyone IN the BYOC area has probably already checked their own computer equipment in, they would know to just remove the tag/label before carrying it out, so you would almost have to do what clothing retailers do and 'lock' the tag onto the equipment in some way that only BYOC staff could easily and quickly remove it.

Other then that I had a great time pimping my payphone PC. I hope to see some pictures of it and the guy sitting behind it floating around the intertubes in the coming months!
