There is a point to add: To allow people to access the wireless from
somewhere tomorrow on they need to have agrred to some set of rules from
the university. We will provide a little application for the
registration desk that does work similar to:

- list of names available. On arrival of person that name gets selected.
- You hand them the wireless ruleset and they acknowledge they got it
  and will follow it. If so you click a checkbox marking it as ok and
  only that will finally allow them to access the network.
- You see a new screen showing the wireless password for the user. Give
  it to them, they should write it down somewhere.

In this interface we will also have a checkbox "arrived". Click it
during this process. Allows us to easily see if someone is there / isnt.

Until this interface is finished simply keep a list of names of people
that arrived written down somewhere, so we can adjust the database when
the interface is there. Same for the wireless stuff. I expect it to be
working around noon, some volunteer is already working on it.
