Hello all,

Our ninth edition .. :)

This month lots of new things..

We launch a National Mail List Archive, 
searchable via specific group or over the entire country!

A "Global News" section.
A departure from strictly "local people - local content"
giving (Ozzie s)a taste of the other flavours across the world..

Media Center - starting to catalogue all the other groups,
LinMagAu does a little "unofficial" PR for :)

Again there may be some errors.. building the search engine and list archive
took a lot of time... Send a "fixit" report if you see any problems :)
