Knowing how much fun it was, I think I'll try an organise a purely techie
day in spring. Next years LinuxWorld will be a lot bigger, and earlier -
maybe september/october. Rusty said he enjoyed it a lot, and wanted to
come next year, and bring the rest of the Linuxcare.au staff, and stay a
week or more this time :)
Also, I intend heading to the LBW this year, and getting promises from
loadsa speakers to come visit us (it's in Belgium, and being organised at
the moment). The year after might be Tanzania, which would be really cool.
How did people find the Dublin Brewing Company on saturday ? I think it
would be an excellent place for an ILUG christmas party. All the (nice)
beer you can drink, in a quiet place where you can choose your own music.
And you don't have to go to the bar. The barman calls down with more beer
when he sees you are low, and is dead interesting to talk to. Knows loads
about beer (actually, if you call in their during the day, he'll give you
a glass of whatever you want for nothing). Loads of pizza too. Alas,
people that are suckers from marketing, and believe that Budweiser or
Guinness are real beers would be disappointed. And we'll have to have a
map. Loads of people (myself included) got lost :*)

to go where you will, even to Mordor, Saruman, if you desire. "
