Hey, don't complain, prove us wrong...

We can't seriously plan on letting Adelaide have the crown of "Best
Linux Conference, Ever." for any longer than absolutely necessary,
right? I mean... it is *Adelaide* after all.

(Of course, to put things in perspective, there's also been the
occassional peep of interest from the Kiwis. It's only sporting to let
them have a couple of minor victories in meaningless and completely
unimportant football games, but we've got to show 'em what's what and
who's who where it *really* counts. Right?)
