What would be fun as hell, if we had enough Macs and phone-net adapters,
that during VCFeXI, would be to setup a phone net network with a node at
each display, have various multi-player games running across it, chat rooms
(if such beasties exist), etc. I think it would be a rather interesting,
widespread display.  If not logistically possible across both display
rooms, maybe just all around one room?  (But would love to see it across
both rooms, it would be an awesome network to configure)
