    Sounds good to me Lincoln

    I'm off to Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Ayers Rock & The Olgas for the older members ) this weekend so I'll have some photos to show hopefully!

    Good luck getting your photos back. I'm not experiencing good service from them.

    Well I'm planning on taking a digital (not sure if I'll take the freebie Samsung I won, or dad's Nikon... prob the Nikon). I'll bring the photos on my USB stick - someone'll have a laptop no doubt

    G'day Lincoln, and fellow froggers,

    Unfortunately I am working Wednesday evening from 3pm - 11pm. So won't be able to make it by the looks of things.

    In regards to the laptop/Sydney geek comment... Errrm, this is coming from a melbournite which is the home of 'all time techno/info/freak/geek' Justin, aka Pug307. hmm. Shall i point out some geeky moments?

    Let me throw just two examples out there:

    - My dinner with him and others (frog+nonfrogs) at Melb china-town restaurant. He pulls out - wait for it.....a COM2000 unit on to the TABLE, to discuss. hmmmmmmm.

    - According to Deka, at another dinner I didn't make it to. He pulled out a laptop to explain how he'd worked out an excel spreadsheet to calculate routes/plans for a trip overseas. hmmmmmmmm.

    (P.S: Don't take it to offence though Justin, it's all good! You just know your stuff, nothin' wrong with that!)

    On a pure geek to geek ratio, I think Sydney has it over Melbourne. But keep fighting it Asanka, don't lose hope!

    Rumour has it that there might be another special surprise at the next one

    Well, when you have a limit of 46,670 kilometres to play with with half a tonne of fare rules on top and juggling 20 flights, Excel's pretty helpful

    Better not be in melbourne, if i want a guide for swedish car interior quality control i'll find a rusty knife or a rope.

    btw here's a pic of the last Sydney dinner, from all reports it was great success, as derek & lincoln battled it out in some intense programming code cracking & anti virus corrupting

    Heheheeeeee! You're a funny bugger Asanka!!! LOL!

    Well it's not as bad as this shot! Although, I'd actually like to have this setup at my place - would make my video editing business pretty damn efficient for those extra large projects!

    Asanka, here I was thinking you were normal. Simply being able to find a pic like that elevates you to geek status. Hang your head in shame, boy.

    I work just up the road, but I'll be there (work) 'til about 10pm. I guess you'll have all packed up and gone home by then.
