Notes: Trinity College's Main Campus is located off Royal Parade. The Evan Burge Building is located near the Tennis Courts. Maps of Trinity and the surrounding area (including its relation to the city) can be found at:

Parking can be found along or near Royal Parade, Grattan Street, Swanston Street and College Crescent. Parking within Trinity College is unfortunately only available to staff. If you are interested in coming to dinner afterwards, it may be advisable to park on the Swanston St side of Melbourne University.

For those coming via Public Transport, the number 19 tram (North Coburg - City) passes by the main entrance of Trinity College (around stop 12). The city end of this tram departs from the Elizabeth Street tram terminus (Flinders Street end). Timetables can be found on-line at:

Before and/or after each meeting those who are interested are welcome to join other members for dinner. We are open to suggestions for a good place to eat near our venue. Maria's on Peel Street in North Melbourne is currently the most popular place to eat after meetings.

LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue and VPAC for hosting!

I beg your indulgence if you would allow a new member to do a lightening talk this evening on "toonlet: your own XKCD in minutes" if you can fit me in. Strictly for fun. See you this evening.

Ah yes, the wiki only uses normal username/password combinations; it doesn't do openid.
