What I meant was that out of a best guess of ?thousand linux folks 
spread across this country, where Debian seems to be the flavour of
the month, (given the hits we get on LinMagAu with Jonathans articles)
it seems "to me" a poor showing with so few events are organised 
when we are so close to the date ?

Stewart raised the suggestion of LA doing something.. 
He said something along the lines of "marketing assistance", raising
awareness of Debian etc ?

So noted.. just doing my usual chase up of threads that have died
each month.. most folks who come up with ideas, usually get a followup
from me much like this, to see what happened, and if we (LinMagAu) can

Thanks for the input
