This is great! Look forward to your visit. Do email me your local contact so we can coordinate. We can always use a volunteer from Lahore :) [ a member can not be a visitor, he has to be a volunteer even for five minutes :]..

BTW any one in Karachi wants to help out is most welcome. We can use more people who can simply talk and explain on one to one basis, what Linux is and why it is Free [ this is most important question :) people are still skeptical ], etc.etc..
