   6 Hi Russell,
   8 More than interested in getting LCA back into the better part of the
   9 world. I've expanded it a bit, attached is a PDF and original so if
  10 you feel like culling stuff you can. This year we ran a JoomlaDay in
  11 Melbourne on the Saturday of LCA which attracted 135 people to the
  12 University of Melbourne. I've applied to do some tutorials and a
  13 Joomla! miniconf/JoomlaDay at LCA2009, not sure if I'll get them or
  14 not but I'll defnitely be there so we can catch up with things there.
  15 I'm sure we could also work on a JoomlaDay for LCA2010 and work out
  16 how to best handle that in the long run.
  18 Someone you might be able to contact who might be interested in giving
  19 some support is Steve Tempest <Steve.Tempest@gts.apn.xxxx>. APN do
  20 some Linux stuff though I'm not entirely certain to which extent
  21 they've got things running. You'd have to check with them to see how
  22 it goes.
  24 You may also want to grab Scott Barnett (scott@strongholdcms.xxxx) if
  25 you haven't already, he's written Stronghold
  26 ( and runs a company called Driea
  27 ( and was a sponsor for LCA08 as well. I don't
  28 have a better email floating about at the moment but that should get
  29 you there. He was working at Townsville Regional Council so you might
  30 be able to track him down there. He may not respond (think he's a part
  31 of OSIA) but you never know your luck.
  33 Cheers,
  35 Sam
