After a long absense due to a lack of a suitable venue, I am happy to
announce that Wslug has a new venue for holding meetings, & will hold
our 1st meeting on the 10th May 2002.
Our New address is:
The Richmond Neighbourhood Centre - Hall No.3
20 West Market St
(5 minute walk from Richmond Train station, opposite the Church)
While we originally planned a different venue, it seems that local
council politics resulted in too many delays in getting the OK, so an
alternative venue has been found to allow us to get everything going!
(Our thanks to the RCSI for their facilities)
We have facilities to seat ~30 people at this stage, with
tea/coffee/softdrinks etc. available for a nominal fee (We have to pay
for the hiring of the facility somehow - At least until we can find a
'sponsor' of some sort :)
I am also hoping to be able to provide CDR's of all current GPL'd Linux
distro's (again to help cover hall hire costs ;), but at present only
have Redhat 7.2 & Mandrake 8.0 for PPC - I figured I'd wait until
Mandrake 8.2 for both x86 & PPC are released before providing the x86
version ;) - If anyone has other up to date GPL'd versions of other
distro's, I'll be more than happy to add it to the arsenal - disk
storage is cheap, much like CDRs ;)
There is no set agenda for this initial meeting, however, I'm sure there
will be plenty of people available for those needing help in getting
Linux up & running on their machines (There is plenty of power/tables
for people to setup their machines :)
My apologies to all who have emailed me regarding wslug, I have been
swamped with enquiries regarding wslug, & don't have enough time to
reply to them all individually - I have setup a web based message board
on the wslug site to allow more people to participate in this
(http://www.wslug.org.au/mb/wslug), & will provide a mailing list
facility if needed.
Our hope is to get Wslug a bit more organised at this initial meeting -
While I know you're out there, we need to also identify those that can
help Wslug evolve to better cater for our user group/community needs!
Oops, almost forgot - Our website remains unchanged :
I look forward to seeing you there!
(Certified - err..iable linux nut + Wslugger ;)
