Hey Guys,

I am yet another long time lurker, and first time poster, and yes, I'm from the so called 'big apple' (from the thread last week or so,) actually not far from CCGS in Claremont. Between my friends I'm referred to as (scary yes) the windows guru of sorts, but also Cisco.--But I'm here for bettering my Linux understanding- as well as interoperability between the OS's.

Anywho, the main reason for my post, is recently I've tried accessing the http://www.opensource.wa.gov.au site, only to be met with a timeout. Ok, not a problem, so I Google it for the cache. Then I find something mentioning greg34, and free software downloads. If I Keep looking I find ads for "free MP3's" and "hot mommas in stockings" or something to that affect. But no website itself. And I can't find anything else in relation Linux, and Perth, apart from basically PLUG.

I've dealt with Phil @OSWA a few times, and often would be the subject of questions I would not dare actually post to a mailing list, as I do wish to have a career at some point. Usually to be bet nicely with a full explanation of why I'm wrong, and the actual theory behind it.

So does anyone know what's going on with this? Is there another group coming into existence, which I haven't heard about? Or are we basically on our own in this? (Apart from resources already able to be used here in Perth. Albeit without support from the government?)
