hi, 1) Who has figured out where to sleep yet? If everything goes according to plan, I'll be hanging around in Toronto for about 10-14 days. According to http://www.archlinux.ca/archcon2010/?page_id=43, a dorm room at the campus is a good bet. The archcon wiki page says you can share rooms, but all the dorms are meant for single occupancy and hence have only 1 bed, according to their webpage. So I was gonna ask if anyone wanted to share a room with me for the duration of the conference (4 days incl. weekend), or possible longer, but seems that's not even possible, unless you take a suite for multiple persons. it's $69 for 2 bedrooms and $79 for 3 bedrooms, per night.
personally, i like "bed & breakfast" formulas, in my region this usually means you live in the house of some person and have often quite a good service for a good price, and a breakfast of course. but if i google for "toronto bed and breakfast" i mostly hit fancy establishments with the associated prices ($70 and more) located in the financial district of toronto (not where the conf is)
Although I did find one in "silverstone drive" (short walk from the conf) (the name of the owner is Barbara Rundle, haven't found an email address, only a phone no.) and I'm also gonna check what I can get out of http://www.torontobandb.com/
Also, where will we eat? Are there any accomodations at the conf? Are there nice snack bars and such in the area around the conf? (google maps only returns some in the financial distruct) Supposing you don't use a B&B formula, where do you get breakfast?
