I'm sure qld is kick-arse enough for LA :)

I've got a tentative plan to be in Qld (around brisbane) for at least a
week in Feb (no travel booked or anything, going to be organising dates
around family there) - maybe meeting up then (as well as at the conf
next week) to discuss QLD related issues would be profitable?

I understand the value of physical presence - and would be happy to come
(and hey, even say a few words) at whatever UG meetings I can make.

lunch/dinner/beer at conf would rock too. Heck, I'm being Pia's
scheduler for everyone else at the conf - she can come too :)

Sounds like a good topic for discussions post-LA AGM at the conf. Could
really benefit from being face to face.
