goes to Perth

The roaming Linux conference folks are at it again - and this time they're taking the show to Australia's west coast.

For the first time in its three-year history, the 2003 Australian National Linux Technical Conference, otherwise known as, will take place in Perth. The event is scheduled to take run from 22 to 25 January 2003 at the University of Western Australia and will be run jointly by Linux Australia and the Perth Linux Users Group (PLUG).

Ongoing conference supporter IBM will again be the Penguin sponsor of the event, alongside Linux Services WA and NT, the event's major sponsor.

PLUG has confirmed that several internationally celebrated Linux gurus will be speaking at the event, including H. Peter Anvin, a SYSLINUX and autofs author, and Alan Cox, a Welshman whom conference organisers affectionately term "kernel hacker". organisers say they have also received several submissions from Linux enthusiasts who are willing to present sessions or tutorials at the forthcoming event. The closing date for submissions is today -- 15 July. More information on the call for papers is available at:

The 2001 annual Linux conference was held in Brisbane, between 6 and 9 February. Around 300 delegates attended the Brisbane event. Conference organisers say they anticipate a similar attendance in 2003, with a larger proportion of international visitors.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
