Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
A heads-up that we have just opened registrations to the NZNOG 2017
conference in Tauranga. Details are here - http://www.nznog.org/nznog17 .
The conference is brought to you by Go Wireless NZ.
We have placed information regarding our current workshop and tutorials on
(Note, we might have some Grandstream phone training available on the
Wednesday as well - we are still firming up details)
We'd encourage people to register early for the tutorials and workshops as
some of these will have limited seats due to room availability.
Also, a reminder that early bird accommodation rates at the conference
venue will finish on December 12. Rooms are limited so again book your

A big thank you to all of our sponsors so far -
Hope to see you there!

Hope everyone is safe; thoughts are with everyone back home. As I went
through the call list of friends and family this morning ; from the
considerably less shakey Eastern Canada - my mind turned to work and
Have a fairly rag-tag list of info mostly anecdotal from users on a variety
of places (twitter/reddit/g+) about loss of services from ISP's (Nelson
area seems pretty hard hit)
Wondering how everyone's networks have held up and if there are any pain
points, am sure the people at the forefront are already hard at work and
sharing resources as required. But if there is anything people can and/or
are willing to share it would be appreciated.
Try Jason Foden - General manager of Ondemand. He can point you in the

I'm looking for someone in charge over at TVNZ who works on their Ondemand platform, Helpdesk and noc so far are stuck and I need someone to work on a widespread issue with their platform.

First of all, I'd like to welcome aboard Go Wireless NZ as our naming and
Platinum sponsor for NZNOG 2017. NZNOG conferences just wouldn't be
possible without sponsors like Go Wireless NZ so I'd strongly encourage you
all to support them.
Check out their website - https://www.gowifi.co.nz/
At the moment we haven't had as many sponsors come on-board as we would
have hoped for. If you have been considering sponsoring NZNOG but haven't
made contact yet please do so. If you know any companies that might
consider sponsoring NZNOG please encourage them also. sponsorship(a)nznog.org
is the email address for any sponsorship inquiries.
If we don't get more sponsors on-board we may have to consider raising
conference fees slightly. We'd really hope to not do this and to keep NZNOG
at its standard low cost. We have a $1000 community sponsor level available
so even having a few more companies/organisations coming on-board at that
level would help a lot.
We have a call for papers for the conference out. Richard Nelson posted
this on Oct 13 to the list - its also available at
We have just locked in our first workshop (23 - 25 Jan) and tutorial (25
Jan) and hope to have more options soon. We'll aim to release some more
details on these soon.
Finally, we've had a few people book in accommodation at our venue nice and
early which is great to see. A reminder, this conference is in Tauranga in
the height of summer and accommodation will be at a premium. Some
accommodation options are available here -
Look forward to seeing you next year.
