Zhonka Heading to Mindcamp 2.0 April 13, 2006

The intrepid Zhonka crew is heading to the second Mind Camp event April 29-30th. Jay and Dave attended the Mind Camp 1.0 event held at an empty “dot-bomb” office building near Boeing-land. While a wee bit tiring (we aren’t 24-hours guys any more), we found it to be a unique and interesting event to say the least.

Basically, what you get is a batch of folks (150 last time, 250 this time) in a free-form space with nothing in particular scheduled for 24 hours. It evolved into myriad workshops and pow-wows ranging from the pedestrain (podcasting) to the way-out (elevators to space) and much inbetwixt.

This time, the space Youngstown Cultural Arts Center seems even better with more useful facilities and breakout areas.

Really though, the best part is meeting a heap of new folks from many disciplines and cross-pollinating ideas. Hollers out to marketing-maven Miss Rogue, Microsoft developer dude Alex Barnett, Internet media tycoon Chris Pirillo, and *many* others …

This time, we’ll take a long more Zhonka friends and colleagues including the lads from Espressoparts NW who will likely keep the crowd rolling late night with their beverages (while I am hopefully enjoying some sleep unlike last year).

For more flavor, check out the Mindcamp1.0 tagged photos on Flickr and/or see the Mindcamp website or wiki or, if very curious, search for Mindcamp-related podcasts on Google or Technorati.


Zhonka Service Outage – March 9th March 7, 2006

NOTICE: Zhonka will be having a planned service outage Thursday morning, March 9th.

We expect the outage to begin starting at roughly around 8:00 AM. The type and length of the outage will depend on what type of Zhonka service you have, and how quickly Qwest can cut over the DSL circuits to our new faster router.

Dialup users may experience problems authenticating, but should be back online much than DSL users, who will come online over a period of a few hours starting around 11:00 AM and hopefully being completed by 4:00 PM.

Please feel free to send us e-mail if you have any questions about this planned service upgrade. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
