Threaten to break legs.  That's how I got the existing ones up there ;)

I'm still listed as admin for the support forum though =)

It shouldn't be about removing data.  If anything you should add more.  Where 
for instance is the announcement about the recent AGM?  There's a report 
about what happened but nothing before the event.  Where are the links to 
linux distributions and information?  The other WA and Aussie *UGs? It should 
all be about making the site as easy to use as possible and providing as much 
good information as possible otherwise there is no reason to go to the site.

As for the 'Web Site' menu section I'd dump the entire thing. It's either 
repeated elsewhere on the main page, useless or out-of-date.  Anything you 
really want from that menu can be added to the navbars at the top and bottom 
of the site.

"I was drunk last night, crawled home across the lawn.  By accident I
put the car key in the door lock.  The house started up.  So I figured
what the hell, and drove it around the block a few times.  I thought I
should go park it in the middle of the freeway and yell at everyone to
get off my driveway."
