Apple's official white iPhone 4 is likely to release untile next year. But in this autumn there's already got white iphone 4 available.

Gary-first off.Thanks for your insightful comments. Much appreciated.
Please note that my comments were in no way negative towards Austin City, etc. , etc. You all have done a fine job in managing the massive event that is SXSW. Your tone in the comments is defensive so my apologies if my post seems to be the opposite.

Let me respond in detail:

1. "You ain't too old to have very comfortably exited the Texas Garage."
I believe that this is a subjective view with regard to whether or not I am too old to deal with anything. It was also said somewhat in jest.
Re: "You wouldn't have had to dea1 with 1,500 people leaving down one flight of stairs."
At the time when I made my decision (approx. 12.15am) I was not aware of any alternative exits as previously I had been at the location with a friend in a wheelchair and the ramps were strictly off limits so I assumed that would be the case in the event of the party being over.

2. "For one thing, the Occupancy Load Card for all shows at the Texas Garage, including the iheartcomix show, was for 3,000 people, not 1,500."
As I entered the garage at approx. 9pm (by the East entrance) a door person asked the security guy what the capacity was and his response was "i think its 1,500 people" to which the door person advised that they were at 1,526 and so they stopped letting anyone in. Call me naive but I took the security guard's word about the capacity being 1,500 people.

"4. Maybe you missed the 50 ft wide Exit, with the big signs with arrows, saying "Exit", at the opening to the Parking Garage Ramp that led all the way to the level. 3,000 people exiting would not even begin to be a hassle."
Please see reference above to the advice that we received earlier that day re: using ramps.

"5. Nothing was shut down at this venue the night before. The iheartcomix event got shut down last year, and the shut down was at a venue that can no longer hold events, due to building limitations, Blue Genie Art.'
When going out, especially during SXSW, you tend to receive tips about what will happen, what might happen and what has happened. Obviously some of it is true, some of it false but part of the 'experience' is trying to filter through that. My filter indicated (based on info. from people who said they had been at the garage the night before) was that the event was shut down early due to complaints from people in the condos beside the garage.

So, Gary, while I again appreciate your detailed info. I feel that all of my comments were justified and will stand by them. If you feel like you would like to discuss them further please don't hesitate in contacting me.

Kind regards,
Colin

You have your information wrong.

http://austincitypermits.com/blog/?p=43

1. You ain't too old to have very comfortably exited the Texas Garage. You wouldn't have had to dea1 with 1,500 people leaving down one flight of stairs.

2. For one thing, the Occupancy Load Card for all shows at the Texas Garage, including the iheartcomix show, was for 3,000 people, not 1,500.

3. That load card calculation was based on the Austin Fire Department's calculations, when I personally pulled the required Permits for that temporary venue (1 of 10 during SxSW), and was calculated at that amount because, among many things that go into an Occupancy Load calculation, it is a rooftop, concrete Parking Garage .

4. Maybe you missed the 50 ft wide Exit, with the big signs with arrows, saying "Exit", at the opening to the Parking Garage Ramp that led all the way to the level. 3,000 people exiting would not even begin to be a hassle.

5. Nothing was shut down at this venue the night before. The iheartcomix event got shut down last year, and the shut down was at a venue that can no longer hold events, due to building limitations, Blue Genie Art.

Please check your facts before confidently posting incorrect information.
