LinMagAu is up for this.. no problems.. I will start building the 
poll setup.. pretty easy to do.. Bret are you going to do the questions?

So now you want 2(or more) polls :)..sheesh give them an inch :)

Do we want to do a major survey that has many areas of questions?
Ie Cert, Distro, Paid or not, Member of LUG or not? :) 

If so we should look at building a big survey along the lines 
of previous say "lucent" like surveys..

If we are happy to go with lots of little ones I can run at least
a couple next month ?  We could run a bunch of smaller ones with
the option for people to do 1 or all or any number in between?

Is there anyone else out there who has suggestions ?
