Happy hacking! Patrick

1. What The Hack in full swing!
Our Wiki is buzzing with activity and all the teams are busy finalizing their preparations. We're really happy with the program - it's the best we've ever had - and the villages are sparkling with creativity. Pre-sales of tickets went well. We sold a total of 1099 tickets during the pre-sale phase, up from 864 at HAL2001. Based on this, we expect there might be 3.000 participants at What The Hack. Party is on, we repeat, party is on. This is not a drill!
If you have two hands and some time, come to the venue for the fiberparty this Saturday, the 16th. We need to lay 2.5 km of fiber. Hard work, but bearable if enough people show up. See http://wiki.whatthehack.org/WTW/index.php/FiberParty for details, and please put a little note on the page if you are sure you're coming.
3. The Saturday and Sunday before
We need quite a few volunteers to put up the big tents, and we would appreciate almost any amount of extra hands on Saturday the 23rd and Sunday the 24th. So especially to those living relatively nearby: even if you plan to come later, you're most welcome to help out, even if just for (part of) a day.
The program has been finalized and kicks *ss. This doesn't mean there will be no changes, but the general picture will remain as is. We've got the full range from wireless networks over shortwave to quantum mechanics to psychedelic research to surveillance technology to lockpicking to kernel hacking to reverse engineering and much, much more. Check http://program.whatthehack.org/events.en.html for details.
5. DECT phones
If you have a DECT/GAP compatible phone, bring it. We have a large DECT phone system, and we can route an extension to your wireless phone. This will allow others to reach you without paying extor^H^H^H^H^Hroaming fees. Phones can also be reached from the normal phone network for landline rates. More information will be available soon, just bring your phone. If you do not have a phone we will be selling them for very cheap (starting at 15 Euros!), so don't buy anything expensive just for WTH.
6. Campsite map available !

7. WTH Nutrition Facts
What The Hack features two large bars: "What The Bar" and "Megabit", both open 24 hours per day (although for liquor license reasons alcohol sales will be interrupted during a relatively short interval late at night). Caterers operating from 12 separate small stands will provide you with a wide variety of meals costing between 1,50 and 7,50 Euro. If you'd rather cook your own meal, there are supermarkets in Liempde, about 2.5 km away from WTH.
8. Wauland Village
Wau Holland was one of the founders of the Chaos Computer Club in Hamburg, 1981. Wau sadly died on July 29th 2001. The CCC Kassel and the Wau Holland Stiftung present Wauland Village which will feature some pictures, movies of his speeches and some special dark beer that used to be one of his favorites. The village will provide information about the the Wau Holland foundation, which supports projects Wau would have been interested in – like their next project: an archive of Hacker's History in Berlin. For further information see http://www.kassel.ccc.de and http://www.wau-holland-stiftung.de
9. British Embassy - Village:
The British Embassy will be an organic growth of Brits who, like many of us, just love messing about with machines. These guys will bring their trusty Cisco gear so we can distribute network out to you if you camp nearby. There will be some small informal talks on the future of Interruptable Programming and also on changes in Audio Recording with Offboard DSP chips. There will be a revised firewall setup to play around with and you'll will be asked for help in breaking it, as long as if you break it you write down how you did it (or better: suggest a better way of securing it). The typically British Tea Time won't be missing either, of course. See http://wiki.whatthehack.org/WTW/index.php/British_Embassy for further information.
10. Coming up in the next newsflash
The next and short WTH newsflash might contain some late breaking travel information and will contain detailed information on how the WTH car-park and the WTH train shuttle service work, as well as a few more practical details. Probably the next thing after that you get from us will be the WTH paper booklet handed out at the registration tent, which will contain many useful tidbits.
11. Communications Lockdown Procedure Initiated
The WTH core teams are all finalizing their preparations to move to Liempde. We still read mail, but we might be less responsive (hah!) than usual. If your issue doesn't affect the event as a whole, it is probably best dealt with once you get there. Tickets are sold at the door. If at all possible just transport yourself to the field and let's figure it out once we all live there.
Meanwhile: keep checking (and updating!) the wiki: http://wiki.whatthehack.org
