Hi Tito,

Monthly, open, business meeting for an hour is this Saturday, February 9th, at 9 am PT (2nd Saturdays of the month), with announcement  and agenda to follow.

Would you like to help bring wiki, MIT OCW WUaS to Indonesia in Indonesian and help facilitate a WUAS committee for this and other similar projects in other languages and countries?

Did you get caught in Jakarta flooding recently?

Hope to talk further with you in business meeting as well as here.

Hi Scott,

Great to see your reply.

I have opened MIT OCW WUaS,should I translate all materials into Indonesia? or only certain materials?

Of course I got caught in flood Scott, even though my house was safe..
Almost all the roads in Jakarta got caught in flood.  But, now it is normal again.

How about you there? I watched the news about heavy bus accident which had more than 10 victims? are u okay?

So, this Saturday, we are going to meet,, don't forget to invite gerd, juan, and etc
