The first annual Home Server Show Meetup location is finally set in stone! I got a nice meeting room in a local hotel and the bandwidth checks out very good! I tested their wi-fi with my phone and got 8Mbps down and 2Mbps up. They also are providing a dedicated Ethernet connection. We should be able to do some great live video. A big thank you to Drobo for sponsoring the event. There will be a big giveaway from Drobo as well as KeepVault, and the Microsoft Home Server Team. If you can’t make it to the event be sure to watch for the live video feed here. The giveaway items will be reserved for HSS listeners only so try to plan on staying the whole time! Regardless, if you are a HSS listener and attending you will be taken care of!

I cannot attest to quality of the rooms in this hotel but the meeting room looked good. It’s not the swankest of locations but it will be fine for our use.

This is the ad that will run in the paper in order to hopefully bring in some of the locals. The local event is 11 to 3 although the “Meetup” is open from 10 to 4.
