Do staff go down with O2 tanks for maintenance, cleaning, server work, etc?

"A senior Westin employee referred to our staff, attendees, and guests as “freaks,” and hotel staff expressed their disapproval of our anti-harassment policy."
Was listed as one of the main reasons for the convention's cancelation. Among others including citing safety concerns of it's guests, among which are some Hollywood stars, and attendees. They did make a note that it was specifically the Chicago River North Westin and that their opinions do not reflect the opinion of Westin or Starwood hotels who have played host to many conventions across the country such as these.
It is saddening that such actions have prevented another Sci-fi convention from being held downtown Chicago. This was the first con of it's kind in almost 10 years to be downtown Chicago and not in one of the suburbs such as Rosemont or Elgin.
Chicago River North Westin has released a statement on their Facebook page denying the incident. Starwood hotel's corporate offices have yet to release an official statement regarding the incident.
Hopefully in 2015 we will finally see a Sci-fi convention grace downtown Chicago again."

Fair question. How is rectangle with rounded edges patentable? http://www.theverge.com/2012/11/7/3614506/apple-patents-rectangle-with-rounded-corners
To block a giant tunneling engine? It'd have to be old-school Nokia.
I don't think it'll overwhelm the OR, they're not directly competing technologies. As stated OR is for creating immersive worlds with high FOV, and Avegant is for consuming standard media.
You have nothing that needs interoperability with your work that can't be handled by Linux.
Does that mean WINE has stopped being terrible at handling games like Path of Exile, Starcraft 2, EVE Online, etc?
News source? I couldn't find any recent info about this, just speculation from 2011.
So you can afford, maybe two new decent Macs?
This sounds like FON(http://corp.fon.com/us/).
When will people stop publishing news articles saying "the Higgs has been confirmed to exist"? This is driving me bat-shit insane. No, the Higgs has NOT necessarily been discovered. Particles have been observed in the LHC at energy levels that match the expected characteristics of the Higgs, but we DO NOT KNOW if it is the standard model Higgs or just something else that looks like it. Goddamn.
I worked for a WISP for 3 years and I can tell you that most WiFi mesh gear sucks, and it relies on very noisy radio space that is subject to a high noise floor and interference from all kinds of other gear. I'd look into a point-to-multipoint system like Motorola Canopy. You hook up a tower (water towers are especially great, as you can often trade tower access for sharing bandwidth with the municipality) with 6 access points each covering a 60deg area around the tower. Then you "backhaul" the tower using another wireless link to your central office where you have your upstream connection, ideally fiber. As time goes on you grow by adding more towers, increasing your geographical service area, adding more fiber links, eventually doing BGP across the network, etc.
A misleading summary? On MY Slashdot?!
Gomorrah - it'll be our little secret.
