      My work anti-virus program has flagged the "Who am I" site as having a Mal/ObfJS-B virus.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for letting me know.

      It might be possible as I have encrypted the whole code in javascript so that it couldn't display in Browser - View Source.

      Let me try some work-around.

      Thanks,

      +> Dipak C. Gajjar

  • Gui A.

    The Wiki says the venue is Doggett's Coat and Badge. It might be good to update that to avoid confusion? Cheers.

    Nice to meet everyone last month. Our jobs ad on the PHP London site proved fruitful and we're still looking to grow our startup team, so don't hesitate to contact us at 3D Industries if you're looking for exciting Zend Framework opportunities.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
