Dayblogging Arisia – Day 2

STORM! Aieeee! There’s a major snowstorm (they’re using the word ‘blizzard’ freely:

Snow…heavy at times. Snow accumulation of 10 to 14 inches by morning. Blustery. Not as cold with lows around 10 above. East winds 10 to 15 mph…becoming northeast 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.
snow Sunday
Snow…heavy at times in the morning…then tapering to flurries in the afternoon. Total snow accumulation of 14 to 22 inches. Windy with highs around 10 above. North winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Bitterly cold wind chills.

It’s spooking a lot of hte attendees, it’s the quietest Saturday night I’ve ever had at an Arisia. At least the reg system worked great!
Wow, missed an entire day. The hotel network link was out of service for most of yesterday, so we had on network connectivity at all. Woe!
At any rate, things are workign! We’ve been making on the fly tuning to the Kiosk app and CONGO all weekend – CONGO itself hasn’t needed much tweaking (except for badge layout issues we resolved yesterday morning), but the Kiosk, being a ‘brand new app’, has definately needed some nudging.
No disasters, no major catastrophes, in fact, no real bumps for the whole weekend. We’re at about 2/3rds of the people checked in, more news later.

  1. Damn, but that was a lot of snow. Everything really ran well, especially considering that the Kiosk stuff was so new.
