Don, I used to know a couple of guys down at WIN TV who've played with
Linux, I don't know if they're still in town though.

As Donna's pointed out, this is pretty much a general discussion list
for anything that affects the FOSS community in Australia, such as the
Women in FOSS, Tux500 (oh please don't let that one start up again) and
If you feel like you've got something technical to talk about, please
don't hesitate to post it. I'm sure that someone on here will pick it up
and run with it.

Nah, we're not that familiar. As with all lists, there are regulars,
just as with all good bars and so on :)
However we always welcome a new face and a new look at things.
So post away, how are you using linux in Rocky?
