The Home Unix Machine Brisbane Users Group exists to get fellow
Unix users in contact with each other, to introduce people to
Unix and Unix-like operating systems, and to help users in
operating those systems.  All are welcome to attend.

This meeting we're happy to have Anthony Towns give a discussion on
his winning entry in the linux.conf.au 2008 Hackfest, a Mandelbrot
fractal renderer for the cell architecture. The presentation will
begin at 6pm.

Meetings tend to be informal.  We socialize, discuss Unix and
computing, solve Unix problems for new and experienced users
alike and, these days, have regular talks.

Date:   Saturday, 22th March 2008 (every second Saturday)

Time:   From 3pm with the network up 30 minutes after we are
       granted entry.  The network will be brought down after
       11pm to allow time to clean up for midnight exit.

Venue:  Room S201, Hawken Engineering Building (no. 50)
       The University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus

       Most of the car parking restrictions do not apply on
       weekends; however, "No parking anytime" means what it says ;)

Cost:   Membership until our AGM in September is $20, but no one
       has to join unless they are going to use club services
       such as our network access during meetings.

Talks:  Information on upcoming talks is announced separately.
       For information on talks see the announcements by our
       Talks Maintainer on the announce mailing list.

Food:   The eating places (ranging from take away to a la Carte)
       at 'The Ville' are usually open until about 10pm Saturday
       night.  There is also the Pizza Cafe on campus near the
       Schonell Theater:
