Gutsy Release Party

Hey guys!
I live in the Newtown area of Sydney and would be keen for a few beers with
the odd geek or two, so long as you speak English for at least half of the
time I'll be happy.
Not to sure the fiance would be keen though *grins* she hates computers/me
being on them.

A pub with some food sounds good as per RE: to the opp.
CBD pubs are all pretty shithouse though and when you settle for something
inbetween you get this self-absorbed relapse of metro-sexuality like you
suddenly fell in to a big pool of "sensative new age" purification, in other
words when its not normal pub in the CBD (see above) its a metro-cafe where
you pay 8 bucks for woolies malt beer and extra for the glass "use" expense.

Or maybe thats just me.

This release needs to support more WAP/WIFI from the get-go to get any real
support from me.
I nearly had the biggest Blowz user I know convert last week (my fiances
dad, he don't speak much English) and after a week of him surprisingly
wanting to get (in this case puppy linux and then xubuntu) going he just
could not get the wireless netgear card to cooperate with the network, in
the end he was all  *serbian accent* "This is bullshit fucking" and happily
went back to windows.

Not a nice time for me. and a sad day for us all :P
