Suprised noone has commented today on the fact that it seems since before
lunch, Xtra have been deferring SMTP:
I figure some people must have some large queues?
Further, I believe mail from Xtra's network outbound is also being
queued/delayed (as i'm waiting for some.)
The whole engineering team can't be at NZNOG - surely!
(PS: Noted that http://xtra.co.nz/help still shows 'there are no known
problems on the Xtra Network' despite the fact I had the issue confirmed
by someone in their support team...)
Just got this in, might want to add some filters to your systems...

Further to my earlier email, theres a trailer outside the NZNOG06 venue
with a satellite link via www.inzonecorp.com (I think - its raining and I'm
inside finally). It isn't live, but has neat toys. We'll open the doors at
morning and lunch time.
For those not at NZNOG I'll post some photos later.
The conference's timetable was revised yesterday to better the
requirements of a number of speakers. There has been no further change
to the material to be presented, but there have been a number of changes
to what is scheduled to take place when.
There can now be no further changes to the timetable, except of course
the last-minute ones forced on us by events beyond our control.

This email covers Location of conference, Late presentation
confirmations, dresscode, conference dinner, Wed and fri night dinner
* Location of conference
NZNOG 2006 will be in Union Hall of the Student Union Building.
More information on how to get there, street address etc can be found
here : http://www.nznog.org/node/86
Btw there is NO parking allocated for attendees. Please plan
accordingly. Also possible to share taxi to campus. If people want to
use the wiki to list who is staying where, I have started a list of hotels.
* Late Confirmations
In case no one has noticed we have had a few speakers added on since
a. Chris Liljenstolpe, a Distinguished engineer in Alcatel will be
talking about Traffic Engineering Decisions in a Large IP network.
b. Tom Vest of Caida will be talking about Market Structure and Internet
c. Mark Williams from Juniper will be talking about Leading Edge
Protocol Developments. http://www.nznog.org/node/72
d. ENUM Talk
What hasn't been made clear till recently is there is going to be a
presentation within the VoIP tutorial on "ENUM, Privacy and Security -
What Has Happened in New Zealand and Why" by Donald Christie and Andrew
Ruthven of Catalyst IT. This is a project they have been working on
and will be used in an ENUM trial later this year.
e. Richard Naylor is not confessing 8)
Unfortunately Richard Naylor's other committments has forced him to
withdraw his talk. We are still hoping to see a bit of him at the
* Dress code:
In case anyone is new to NZNOG meetings, dress code is casual. You will
stick out if you wear a suit. 8) T-shirt and jeans will be de rigeour.
If you wish to accessorise it, bring your interesting lanyard. Just make
sure you can clip/attach the name badge pocket to it. Yes lanyards will
be provided. You can however choose to use your own.
* Conference network
As Joe has mentioned, there's a conference network for all attendees to
use. This will enable you to respond to any issues or keep an eye on
things at work. Please ensure you can put your mobile or pager in vibrate
* Conference Dinner
The conference dinner will be at Shooters in Wellington.
A caterer has been organised to provide a spit roast meal.
I believe people who have indicated their
In light of the programme change on Thursday (slightly earlier finish),
I think we will be heading to Shooters before 7:30pm. Won't surprise me
if it is as early as 7pm.
As with previous years, dinner is a casual, relaxed affair to allow all
to mingle and socialise at ease. I have been assured the bar tab is
bigger than last year AND Shooter's Happy Hour ends at 9pm. I'm hoping
to see them today to ensure we are eligible for the Happy hour prices.
Entry to the function is limited to conference delegates or student
delegates who have purchased a dinner ticket, or guests with tickets
purchased by delegates.
* Wednesday & Friday night dinner
We have to have dinner and so it seems practical to try to have dinner
at the same venue. Anyway like last 2 years I am attempting to organise
these two dinners. All are welcome. The bill for the evening will be
divided equally by the number of people there. So please be warned that
you will be expected to pay your share.
Dinner on Wednesday night will be at Daawat. Daawat is home to
Wellington Thursdaynight curry. Unfortunately it was rulled out as the
venue for the conference dinner as the capacity was too small. Since Wed
night dinner tends to be smaller in numbers I am confident they can
accommodate us. They have been warned about us! 8)
Start time really depends on when we end. At the latest the start will
be 7:30pm. My guess is we'll probably be there by 7pm, assuming all
tutorials are finished by 6pm.
Please put your name here if you are planning to come to curry.
Otherwise (if you don't get around to it), just show up.
Venue for dinner on Friday night is still not planned. I don't think
we'll have much problem finding somewhere as long as we stay away from
pubs as there's a rugby game on. We could have curry again or go
somewhere different like Chinese meal or middle eastern.
I've started a page for ideas: http://wiki.nznog.org/index.cgi/Friday_Night
Look forward to seeing everyone
Just to say that we've extended NZNOG registration until Tuesday lunchtime.
We'll then shut the registration because that's the last time we can get
numbers for catering in.
If you are paying by cheque then we'll expect that at registration, or in
cash on the door please.

The F-Root server in Auckland has scheduled maintenance today.
During the maintenance, BGP sessions to ISC routers should stay up
but announcements of 184.108.40.206/24 and 2001:500::/48 will be
withdrawn, leaving traffic towards F to be routed towards other
places (most likely Palo Alto, San Francisco, Hong Kong, or Brisbane).
Service will be restored either later today, or early tomorrow,
depending on availability of the remote staff performing the
maintenance, who are not in UTC+12. Due to the re-routing, there
should be no practical customer impact from this maintenance.
If there are any concerns or other issues, contact noc(a)isc.org,
ideally preserving the ISC-Ops tag in the subject field that you see
in this message.
