Yes, we saw the tweets. We heard the complaints. We know – the Gangplank wifi has sucked.
Part of it was waiting for the project rooms to be done in order for us to move the server out of the temporary space and allow for more permanent wiring in the main space. Another part was the sheer cost of hundreds of feet of cable, ports, and switches.
Thankfully, our anchors stepped up, donating funds and time to build the Gangplank network.
A tremendous huzzah to Will Bradley and HeatSync Labs, whose members volunteered over several weekends and weekday evenings to pull cable, install ports and climb into the dusty rafters of Gangplank to maximize our network. Without their generous donation of their time, all the equipment would still be sitting in a corner.
