QuoteYes how true. But remember our entire staff works on SMF on a volunteer basis. We have team members all across the globe. We are rarely all online @ the same time, even for our team meetings. Meeting in person, dedicating a week to SMF will allow us to do things that just aren't possible on the net. Of course we will save time to have fun, but remember, this is a group of people who dedicate 5-30 hours a week (sometimes more) to an online project for fun.

Quote from: Saleh on September 26, 2007, 08:51:25 PMI hope those outside the US wont be facing the horrible nightmare of getting a visa as we do here.

Quote from: http://www.unitedstatesvisas.gov/visiting.htmlCitizens of certain countries, traveling for visitor visa purposes for 90 days or less, and who meet all the requirements, can travel to the United States for tourism or business under the Visa Waiver Program. Additionally, certain citizens of Canada and Bermuda do not need a visa to visit the U.S.

I remember reading something about the difference between a plain old passport and one of the new ones with a chip/biometric data. The former of which i think needs a visa. But as ever I believe the US dept changed their minds at least once.Quote from: ALM on September 27, 2007, 10:44:34 PMThen again, I think its the citizenship that counts. -ALMUnfortunately not. There are no citizens of the United Kingdom. Only (loyal) subjects of the Queen.Thats our anachronistic country for you.
Quote from: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/temp/without/without_1990.htmlInternational travelers, who are nationals of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries, seeking to travel to the United States without a visa, should review this important information on passport requirements for travelers under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). All VWP travelers, regardless of age or type of passport used, must present individual machine -readable passports. In addition, depending on when VWP travelers' passports were issued, other passport requirements apply: * Machine-readable passports issued or renewed/extended on or after 10/26/06 – requires integrated chip with information from the data page ( e-Passport ). * Machine-readable passports issued or renewed/extended between 10/26/05 and 10/25/06 – requires digital photograph printed on the data page or integrated chip with information from the data page. * Machine-readable passports issued or renewed/extended before 10/26/05 – no further requirements. * Temporary, emergency, official and diplomatic passports are exempted from biometric digital photo and chip requirements, but must be machine-readable. * Italian, French and Temporary German Passports
