Hello all,

Our eigth edition .. :)

We won..!!
The Community section Award from AUUG Open Source Awards recently announced
at their annual conference.. 
There will be an official "handing over" ceremony of the little tux statuette
we won.. and there is a big article about the whole thing in this edition :)
See the LinMagAu Update..

The Survey is done.. 
Phew "munging" the results was harder than coming up with the questions :)
A big report and stats break down .. and some comments from folks :)

And finally a way for you to support LinMagAu.. in a tangible way :)
Send someone from LinMagAu (probably me) to LCA2004.. 
or just make a donation to cover costs and help us to bring more good stories to you ..
See the PayMate button on the site.. 
NB: a local online payment system.. and it works :)
