Not sure I agree. And what I mean is, there are a number of 
surrounding (city?) public free lots in the area that I, at least, was 
rolling with. And, our best guess is that this is a temporary (1 
year?) issue?

Or am I missing something.

Not that I want to go back to the Working Centre, as it was. 
Background noise level was (becoming?) insurmountable for me. But that 
may be just be my particular situation. Perhaps addressable, for all I 
know. e.g. more effective mic'ing (microphoning?) for the back 
listeners, perhaps a portable noise screen (room divider?) is kicking 
around (left open a little bit for a corridor?). A giant white noise 
generator pointed at the cafe?

	Not that there aren't audio issues, for me personally, at the 
Huether, but I don't think those issues are location specific. I don't 
mean to besmirch Khalid, but I just can't hear him consistently. No 
foul to Khalid, I am VERY grateful for his presentations. He's just a 
very quiet speaking person. With a LOT of VERY WORTHWHILE things to 
say, and listen to.

Would a different night make the Working Centre more palatable? e.g. 
The first Tuesday of a month, or something? Would a different night 
make more venues palatable?
