Hi James & List,

I'm quite glad you brought that up, because as a web developer, I have 
had long (silent) concerns about the quality and attractiveness of the 
Linux Australia website.

One of the things I remember many years ago that first got me into 
linux, was the great community websites, with excellent humour, images & 

I also have a thought to throw out there: Maybe linux.org.au & 
linux.com.au should be seperate, linux.org.au being similar to how it is 
now, simply information about the orginsation, and linux.com.au being a 
more commercial, user friendly community site!?

Anyway... all that said, if you need any help, I would be more than 
happy to put my hand up for this project!
