probably at the Glenorchy library UPDATE: venue will be Bridie O'reilly's upstairs 7:00 for 7:30 start , but the location may change if I can locate a better venue! Watch this space for details.
UPDATE2: Pia Waugh from Linux Australia will be there too giving an update from LA
Registrations are now open for the 2006 Tasmanian IT Summer Conference

What : The Tasmanian Summer IT Conference is a one day technical
conference and is the premier IT event in Tasmania. The conference
offers an educational forum for system administrators of all platforms
and levels of experience, and an excellent opportunity to meet, network
and learn. The conference provides a forum for Systems Administrators,
Systems Managers, Network Administrators, Developers of Systems
Administration Software and Managers of such groups to meet and share
their knowledge and experiences.
This month TasLUG have a guest presenter from Germany who will be presenting on Grid Computing and the ROOT toolkit (details follow). We've done this meeting in conjunction with SAGE-AU who have provided us with a venue at IMB in Murray St (bit more central than the Glenorchy Library). So everyone note the change in our usual meeting date to the 20th Jan which is a Friday, time - 6:00pm, and venue (IMB in Murray St.)
Hopefully I'll catch you all there for what looks to be a fascinating presentation.
BTW look out for the write-up on TasLUG in this month's Linux Format mag! :)
PS. These are the details that SAGE-AU posted to their list, you can RSVP to me if you'd prefer and I'll hand on the info about numbers.
I don't know how many of you are keeping up with the LA & LUG podcasts but they are an excellent source of info about
what's going on around Australia in the F/LOSS and LUG communities. Last night they had a LUG live webcast of the SLUG meeting in which they announced a competition for the "community member of the year".
It's that time of year again where we have our AGM, committee nominations and elections. The AGM will be held on Tuesday the 29th on irc.taslug.org.au #taslug 7:30 PM. Nominations are open as of today 14/11/05 and close on the 22/11/05 (5pm).
