The attack in Mumbai and the storming of Thai protestors to oust their PM forced the Bangkok Intl Airport to be closed - all these are unwanted worries but something we should be aware, too. Thai Airways cancelled all flights since yesterday and today. Hoping that things get back to normal soon as I have a stopover in Bangkok on the way to Hyderabad and back. I heard that the Thai PM should be back today from the APEC meeting in Peru - hoping again that negotiations will prosper.

ICANN Security staff are monitoring the recent attacks in Mumbai and have the following immediate advice for staff and other travelers to the upcoming IGF Meeting in Hyderabad.

1) If possible – transit through Mumbai Airport to Hyderabad should be avoided. Police activity and increased security in Mumbai is already causing significantly increased delays in transit. Increased security nationwide will likely affect other cities in India over the next several days but will cause the greatest delays in Mumbai for the short term.

2) Novatel Hyderabad and Hyderabad International Convention Centre staff have advised that additional security and police coverage will be in place for the IGF meeting. Attendees should be prepared to furnish additional identification to authorities in transit and at the hotel/conference venues.

3) No specific information has been developed to indicate that there are increased threats to the meeting venue but attendees should continue to monitor the situation and maintain contact with meeting organizers. The well coordinated attacks in Mumbai appear to target western visitors and ICANN board and staff should take appropriate precautions to avoid high profile while in country.

Hi guys! I see that we need laptop adapters to two round-prong plugs. That's easy enough. However, be sure to check transformer on your charger to make sure your input accepts 220V gp

Hi guys! I see that we need laptop adapters to two round-prong plugs. That's easy enough. However, I also see that the electrical current is 220 V. How are you getting around that? Do we need to buy a transformer? Does anyone know for sure what we need for compatibility? Thanks! gp
