  21. Mayur, actually i will be able to reach by 6.30 pm due to my office timmings. but i will try my best toreach there--Mayurbot (talk) 17:50, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
    Mayur, We have moved the timing to 6 pm to accommodate everyone leaving their offices, I hope that the new timing is comfortable. Looking forward to meeting everyone in person.--Theo10011 (talk) 10:24, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Naresh Pal s/o Jai Ram Pal Hi, Exciting I want to go there really but timing is problem. I m in Noida and office timing is 9/30 to 6/30. Next time you should try to comfortable timing schedule. I will miss it

  1. I m too interested but timing will be problematic, as I m working in Gurgaon. I think we should have done this meeting on weekends, I know its not possible as Barry Newstead will be attending these kinds of meeting in other cities. In week days its hard for working people who stays far from delhi center. But I m excited about this meeting. I will try to my best to reach there. cheers KuwarOnline Talk 12:34, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
    I understand your concern Kuwar, but as you said Barry's availability is an issue for weekends. We have moved the timing a bit to 6 P.M. in order to accommodate anyone leaving their offices, it would be great if you could attend the first meet. Let me know if there is anything I can do.--Theo10011 (talk) 20:34, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
  2. My office is near CP and my Office is till 5.30pm. So barring any unforeseen increase of work on that particular day, I shall definitely make an effort to attend the FIRST EVER meetup in Delhi !!! Quite excited about it ...! Just confirm the exact venue location and I will try to be there by 6 pm....Gprince007 (talk) 14:40, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
    Great to hear that, I updated the Venue. Please consider joining the Delhi mailing list for any future updates. Thanks.Theo10011 (talk) 20:34, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
  3. Probably coming. Yann (talk) 08:11, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
    That's great!! looking forward to meeting you Yann.Theo10011 (talk) 23:46, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
  4. looking forward to the meetup...does anybody have any idea about parking in this area? I understand Connaught Place parking has been redeveloped into pedestrian spaces --Sesamevoila (talk) 07:46, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
    You can find one in front of Janpath Shopping Lane. KuwarOnline Talk 07:54, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
    You can park your car in the outer circle parking, right outside Barista/Cafe Coffee Day/Blues. Its right across the street. ( Prateekshah03 )

Hey guys, Anyone considered about parking can check the outer circle first, there is always the NDMC multi-level Parking lot next to Palika Bazaar on the Inner circle, it usually has a lot of free space available. I would also like to remind everyone to please join the Delhi mailing list [1].--Theo10011 (talk) 12:18, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

I was told that it may be dangerous to travel on September 24, because of the forthcoming judgement on the Ayodhya case. What do you think? Yann (talk) 09:25, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, I am not sure about that. It is a sensitive issue and their have been precautionary measures placed for that day. Maybe someone else can comment on the issue. --Theo10011 (talk) 09:36, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
OK, finally I am not coming. Travel issues, too much work, and I also got a cold. Yann (talk) 13:14, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
