Something's new? We'll post it here!

Hey there everybody, 


today starting at 6pm we will have a blackout-test of our setup. We want to know if our battery works properly and every system with it.

Best Case scenario for you: nothing really happens, except for 5 Minutes when our battery is emtpy and we resupply power.

Why are we testing it? If the general power fails for some reason and our battery doesn't work, it will be bad. So we want to make sure everything works properly.

Wish us luck!

..over Ethernet comes Ultra-Highspeed WiFi for everyone!


Earlier today we tweeted: 


Our PoE (electricity through network cable) hardware arrived today and we installed those Midspans in every house. With that we have our infrastructure to a point where everyone should be able to get an Access Point from us. Ultrafast WiFi for everyone! Right now our limiting factor is our AP supply, but we are working on that. (Negotiating with our suppliers at the moment.)


We would like to thank everyone who worked on that today for about 6 hours. But don't worry, they got compensated with pizza.marco at work
