Wasnt this great!!
Kudos to Mahendra, all the managers and volunteers!!
So here goes my report!!
I happened to be one of the volunteers at the LB/2001
and now I regret why I ever Volunteered... ;-). We
all had a great time in LB/2001.The most of the time
we were running around the place trying to get
machines to the halls. Well there were instances
where there was a speaker in the hall with a jam
packed audience and no machine to project his
slides. Thank god none of the delays were large.
Sometimes the delays were for getting the presentations into the
respective machines. You may have an argument that this
*shud* have been done earlier. Well, well.... we did not
have the machines to do this. Amidst all this mayhem we
suddenly find that the CD containing the slides is
lost!! Whoa.. Then we got Shanu to rush to the office,
burn a copy of the CD and get it. As of Sunday
night, it was originally planned that that there would
be one server where all the presentations would run
and all the other machines would be networked (This was
Atul's idea). But unfortunately there was no machine
powerful enough to become the server.
Well.... now for act 2: I happened to be a speaker for
the first time. Oh this was a experience worth
remembering. Initially, I started to talk and I notice
Kishore sitting there in the very first row. Whooops!,
there I go. I got nervous and stuttered initially for
15 mins. Then I got comfortable and started to
relax. Now for the funny part. There was this guy in the
very first row, and was supposed to be changing my
slides (He is my close friend ). He dozed off in
the very first row and the only time he got up, maybe,
was to change my slides ( thank god he did at least
that ). Hey Manish! ( the fella who slept ) thanks for not
Otherwise the talk went off well .
