HT, Ralph,

Since we are going to be within a corporate facility, we have to be good 
corporate citizens...

we plan on having local connectivity within the technology center at all 
times. This would include access to printers. (many)

we also have  'guest access' to the internet, no proxy authentication. 
This will assure that attendees are not cut off from the world.

All Ricoh and Lanier participants have full internet and local access at 
all times.

... and the libre software meeting organisers had the perverse
idea of switching off network access completely during their
open-source evangelism session to pursuade people to turn up...
(sigh...) - network connectivity was not reliable either even when
they had it up :-(.
