Oh man . All the hotels claim to have free wireless throughout the hotel. Does that mean no more late night laptop partys in the lobby???

I was wondering if the street signs are in French/English or French only. When I was in Spain I could read the street sign in Spanish, but when I went to Barcelona all the signs were in Catalan. If the sign are only in French maybe some kind person could post a list of French signs in English. IE in Spanish Salida=Exit. Thanks

Depends what part of the city you're in. They're pretty easy to understand especially for people who speak both English and Spanish.

My French is imperfect but I've been to Montreal and elsewhere in Quebec enough times to know that all you need to concern yourselves with regarding street names is to remember some common translations.:

Rue = street
Ch. or Chemin = road / way
Boul. or Boulevard = obvious
Pl. or Place = obvious
Cr. = crescent

P.S.: Is it just me or are some or many of the organisers not Montreal residents?

It's not like dealing with a totally different script. Try driving in Russia or Japan or China.

Yes, most of us are New England, US residents, however we have also enlisted the help of some of our local Monreal/quebec residents to help us out as well. If there is anyone else from this region that is willing to help please PM me, and we'll gladly consider people. We won't be able to take many, but a couple more wouldn't hurt, i'm sure!

What I do find funny is that people are complaining about free wireless in the rooms.

Now, it's all likely one subnet. Can you say "IRC server for TDIFest only"?
