QuakeCon 2019 - Year of Doom and Docker containers?!

We all remember when doom came over to linux right? PSdoom was an amazing hacking feat. One could play doom and kill system Daemons at the same time. How meta was that?!

I brought this up before but I feel the need to do it again. Are you planning on taking multiple networked devices into QuakeCon (i.e. a rack of Raspberry Pi)? They’ll likely reject it during registration. Might be able to get away with it using adhoc wireless networking assuming they let in at all.
