[Apologies for the following non-operational content; if you are not coming to Toronto next week, hit delete now]
For those attending NANOG 39 in Toronto next week who don't already see enough generic data centre space in their normal work week, there will be a TorIX tour on Tuesday February 6, some time after the last BOF/Tutorial finishes.
There's a limit to the number of people we can practically haul through building security without causing trouble, so first-come, first-served. If for some bizarre reason there is an unexpectedly large number of people who think touring 151 Front is the right way to spend a Tuesday evening, we might try and do two trips, find people to open more than one suite, etc.
If you're interested, sign up here:
We have an slightly astounding 40 people signed up to visit 151 Front Street tomorrow evening. Building security have agreed to sign people in ahead of time according to the list at the above URL, which will save some time. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING PHOTO ID - you won't be let in without it.
Due to the large number of people, we'll be going through the building in two shifts. If people could start milling about in the hotel lobby at 6pm instead of 6:30, that'd be very handy; as soon as we have 20 people assembled, we'll dispatch them off through the PATH.
[There's a few hundred metres at the end of the walk down to Front Street that can't happen underground through the PATH, so bring a coat or you're going to feel a bit frosty.]
Two suites which contain TorIX switches will be open, one by the nice people at Switch and Data, and another by the very excellent Matt Potvin of Standard Connections (who also smoothed the sign-in process with 151 Front security). Many thanks to both.
