Greetings all, apologies for duplication and cross postings,
AND, to those of you who have already heard about

As you may know there is a small group of folks in Perth WA
(with added "remote" support from other states), mostly LUG
members and other *nix interested people, attempting to create a "local content" *nix/Open Source magazine covering the .au/nz area.

Currently we will be holding BOF a (Birds of a Feather) meeting at the coming Linux Conf here in Perth, and whilst the linmagau site is already up and running, currently it contains mostly information and basic set up.

We plan to launch the first content filled (online) issue,
some time in Feb 2003, with a hard copy companion
appearing not too many months later, (finances willing).

WHY : would we attempt such madness?

To support the *nix community,
To promote *nix awareness in an Australasian context.
To provide a venue for content more relevant to local issues(au/nz)
To supply tech info/tips/hints/contacts for all *nix users
from newbie to advanced.
