Don’t Touch It Please
Office is abuzz with four days before BangLinux begins. Registrations have been pouring in which is good but I forgot to tell the foreign speakers that you need a visa to enter India which is bad. Some—Damien Conway [http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~damian/], Rasmus Lerdorf [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasmus_Lerdorf] —were quick enough to spot this and sort it out. Yay. Some were not and assumed they didn’t need one. Boo. Visas usually take a week to sort out. We now have two days.
Welcoming me back to Bangalore, John gives me a friendly slap on the shoulder. Sorry - ex-shoulder, now huge heat blister. I scream accordingly. Dilip and crew refrain from doing the same. Hitting my shoulder that is—not screaming.Posted on March 1, 2001 #India
