16:20 < DanS> basically i'm putting in an absentee nomination for the LA
17:04 < rmt> DanielS: I know why you're ineligible.
17:05 < DanielS> Because I'm not in Perth?
17:05 < rmt> No, because you're not a Linux Australia member.
17:05 < DanielS> Err ...
17:06 < rmt> By registering for LCA2003, you automatically become a
17:06 < rmt> (and paying :)
17:06 < DanielS> I'd grep +sent, but I've too much real work to
17:09 < rmt> DanielS: LA handles the finances for LCA. By registering
for LCA2003, you automatically become a member of LA.
17:10 < rmt> What that membership might give you? That will be discussed

It would take me too long to grep through my IRC logs, but the basic

Either I was maliciously provided incorrect information, preventing me
from nominating for the board, or there is a serious irregularity in the
procedures, resulting in the election to the board of someone who
should, by all rights, be ineligible.

I'm sick of shit like this, Rob.
