Working SSB contests with a Maestro over hotel WiFi presents some challenges.  Below is a link to a summary I wrote about my experience working NAQP from a hotel.  It includes some information about how to navigate hotel WiFi and make your Maestro work with it.

    Colin, could you describe what you are using for a VPN server?

    Right now I'm using a Windows 2012 R2 server running Routing and Remote Access.  In the past, I used a Cisco firewall as my VPN server.  Now many of the inexpensive home routers will act as a VPN server too.  Functionally they are all similar.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
