yeah, let's do it. would we have a cd-burner there. or, perhaps you can do a 
cd-requirements headcount, and then we could bring blank cds, and swap them 
for the burnt ones. or something similar.
anyways, i do need the CDs, both of TeXLive7, 6, the 3cds, and a couple of 
books. also need to know if these can be distributed freely to other students.

you probably have enough time to install a dual-boot. or we could work with 
knoppix, and keep some apps on a local partition. whatever.

nah! what we do is, the money collected at the venue goes towards water, tee, 
snakes. by the way, what's the legal status of tugindia delhi? what will you 
do with the money collected? if we have no such formal status, it is better 
to collect just enough money to cover all incidental costs, costs of giving 
everyone a cd, a book, etc. etc.

what sayest thou?

am quite excited to see some signs of activity at TUGindia delhi and hope 
this thing really grows.
