It's great that you're doing that, and that linux is getting that sort of 
reception there.  I daresay that there are a lot of geeks located n other 
provincial centres that could make similar claims.  I have still yet to hear 
an answer for 'why Broome?'.  Albany, Bunbury or Kalgoolie would imho have 
better claims for holding an lca.

Does anyone remember how much the budget for lca2003 was?  Wasn't it something 
like $50-100k?
