Team Harbor buildup, despite one noteworthy setback, is moving at a rapid pace.
Datenklo Connected With Fiber
Our Datenklo (DK) has been connected with fiber. We don’t yet have Internet connectivity, since so far there is no Ethernet switch in the DK.
Our hope is that the NOC will deliver their switch for the DK on Monday, so we can start plugging our 10Gbps switches into the DK switch and also plug in some of the 1Gbps copper patch cords for those boats without optical gear.
Slip Assignments Published
In cooperation with the harbormaster, we published the slip assignments for all boats that we are aware of. If you plan to attend CCC Camp 2019 by boat and the name of your boat is not on our lists of boats and people on board those boats, please do contact us immediately!
If you believe any of the slip assignments to be incorrect or if your boat ends up berthed in a different slip than shown on our slip assignments list, please do let us know.
the drydock Tent Delayed
When we inspected the SG50 rental tent parts that make up the structure of the drydock yesterday, we discovered that the delivered package is missing five frame tubes. The missing tubes are supposed to be delivered late afternoon Monday. At which point the drydock buildup can begin, which is by far the largest buildup task that we need to perform. There is a lot of infrastructure that will go inside that tent.
In the photograph above, you see the location where the drydock will stand. When we arrived for this last site survey mission before moving operations to Neuer Hafen in preparation for CCC Camp 2019, the harbormaster’s staff had just about finished mowing the grass that our tent will sit on top of.
In major good news, our Datenklo (DK) has been placed. Much gratitude goes to the NOC and the “radlader” crew that made the placement happen. Thank you so much!
The Team Harbor uplink fiber will terminate in this DK (DK-SW-Z15) and it will also house a NOC-provided uplink switch and WiFi access point. From this DK, we will distribute Internet connectivity via 10Gbps fiber to switches in the drydock and some boats as well as via 1Gbps copper to other boats.
The DK will look much nicer during the event than in this photograph, once all the equipment has been installed inside and the DK is wrapped in shiny emergency blankets foil.
Fiber Uplink Run Refined
We reconfirmed and improved upon the anticipated uplink fiber run, which we will have to perform ourselves. We have a detailed plan and an experienced Team Harbor volunteer fiber crew from Freifunk Essen to string the fiber. We will receive invaluable assistance from the great people at the Chaosvermittlung, who will string their double-steel core telephone wire, providing the drydock with field telephone service, before we need to string the fiber. Allowing us to simply mount our fiber to their wire. Much appreciated!
The first part of the uplink fiber run was initially quite challenging. This first section has to be installed in the air, from the feeder Datenkloo (DK-SW-X13) at the left of this photograph, up a tree, to ultimately drop down to the roof of the wooden shed partially obstructed from view by the red steel cages at the right of the photograph. Doing this run with fiber alone would have required hopping from tree to tree across at least five trees.
The double-steel core wire used by Chaosvermittlung can perform this lengthy jump using just two trees as anchor points. Thereby vastly simplifying the subsequent installation of our fiber.
Until recently, the area north of Neuer Hafen was designated as a camper/RV area. It is now the new Curie – Talks I area, hosting the largest of the lecture tents. This change likely will mean far more foot traffic in the CCC Camp area closest to us. Therefore resulting in more visitors to the Team Harbor area than we would have received back when we were 250m offsite.
With CCC Camp 2019 starting in under two weeks, Team Harbor is receiving multiple inquiries per day from CCC Camp 2019 participants that are considering staying on a boat or yacht instead of a tent, camper, or RV.
We have good news for you: charter boats are still available!
Team Harbor’s home during CCC Camp is the Marina Neuer Hafen, about 250m from the CCC Camp main entrance. This marina is quite large. Three different charter boat companies operate out of Neuer Hafen, offering boats for rent in a wide range of sizes. From tiny boats that will sleep a single person to large yachts that can easily accommodate eight people or more.
If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact Team Harbor. Our mission is to provide anyone considering attending CCC Camp 2019 by boat with advice, infrastructure, and useful tips based on what we learned about participating in hacker camps by boat.
After nine months of planning, design, and preparations, Team Harbor’s last pallets of equipment are on a 40-ton truck en route to CCC Camp 2019
Arrr, fellow sailors!
First of all: Big shouts and thanks to everyone involved in Team Harbor for coming so far – it looks like the harbor will be one of the coziest and nicest spaces at the camp, this year.
I am also very proud to announce the Hackerfleet@Camp19 community program (mostly happening at the harbor, too!):
- conduct the regular maritime hacker’s meetup,
- give a lecture about updates around Hackerfleet’s technology and
- introductory workshops on how to assemble and use the free and opensource hard- and software we developed
We would love to host a soldering/diy workshop for maritime equipment, but haven’t found an organizer, yet – so if you’d be interested in doing that, please ping us!
Exact dates and times will be published here, as well as in the camp wiki. Feel free to check out our repositories, beforehand. You can also join our maillist and here’s more info on how to contact us.
We’re looking forward to enjoy the harbor (and camp) with all of you!
