I just wrote to Ana about this and she wrote saying that it has
coincidence that we did not have the upstairs room. The schedule
the near future is:
> *Thursday, April 13* (Theater production in theater - actors use
> studio up there as their dressing room) - GNU downstairs admin
> *Thursday, April 13 *- GNU upstairs room
> *Thursday, April 27*- GNU upstairs room
> The month of May should still be upstairs unless something comes
> up. I
> will notify you in advance!
I will ask her if she can consider us "first class" to use the
-- i.e. that we are considered a "pre-existing" meeting that other

Ted> and seating is limited
Upstairs I think we can reconfigure that.
Jason's point about the wi-fi is definitely damning. What would
say if I proposed to Ana that we take a hard-nosed approach to the
wi-fi: we (by "we" I mean SITC, of course :-) ) set it up as we
once and she is committed to not let random people who know 10%
than her about networks come in and mess it up.
I think that if with a tiny bit of work we can do it, then we are
supporting something quite nice at W21.
