Hi Geoffrey,

I'd like to give you a huge heart-felt thank you for all your efforts
in organising LinuxSA for the past decade, and for being "the face" of
Linux in Adelaide.  It's a huge, unrewarding position, far too often
gaining the criticism of others and not the accolades it deserves.
You have been faithful, consistent and generally awesome!

Looking back at the numerous installfests, being the back-bone of
LCA2004, serving on the LA committee, and of course everything
surrounding LinuxSA, especially including the monthly meeting
organisation - you've done a lot for the promotion of Linux and Open
Source in South Australia.  You _will_ certainly be missed - both for
what you did, and for the way you did it.  Thank you!
