I don't know how many of you guys would be interested in having a small celebration for our 40,000,000th page served, which will probably happen sometime this month (August 2005)?



*** Important update ***:

The event will be on Saturday 13 August 2005, from 5:00pm.

We are booked at:

The Last Supper Club
21 Blair Street
Wellington
+64 4 801 5212

Please RSVP in this thread if you haven't done so yet so we can confirm numbers!

We will have a couple of spot prizes, provided by phonestuff, cafenet and ourselves. The prizes include Cafenet 24 hours passes for Wi-Fi in Wellington, a few t-shirts, D-Link DWL-G630 802.11g PCMCIA card, Bluetooth adapter, Pocket PC Magazine Demo CDs, and more...

Communications: at this stage Telecom New Zealand will provide a shared CDMA EV-DO access through a Wi-Fi access point. If you want you'll be able to connect your laptop, tablet PC, Palm or Pocket PC to the network. Yes, post on Geekzone from there!

For out-of-towners: a few people are actually coming to Wellington to join us, so feel free to do the same!

Confirmed:
freitasm (and partner)
ptorr (and partner)
darrylb (and partner)
Suntamer
Jama
KevDaly
Taniwha

WOW! don't have to change the party for the sake of my travel plan! hehehehe..... I will be in wellington on 12th (Friday) night, i will check with my partner and see about it. hehe.

Possibly Saturday night would sound better if you really really really want to have it on 12th weekend, just thought that we fly in on friday night and kinda rush to get to the party.

Hmmm. Ok, Saturday night (perhaps from 6:00pm) is fine for me as well... Jama has a new baby, he will have to apply for a leave...

Partners welcome of course.

Will find a place, but I have the idea of a tapas bar in town, if it suits everyone... First round of drinks and some nibbles on me.
