While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy your own beer.

Dominic Hodgson

I think i might be there :P


Excellent. I'll be there. The last one was great!


I have house guests for a couple weeks - but I'll do my best to get along even for a short time to meet everyone :)


count me in :)


Thought I might pop along for an argument on the benefits of Linux on a desktop and other such nerd nonesenseness.


I've got Linux on a desktop (just about)!

What time do the talks start (roughly), may grab some some food on the night and it would be rude to miss them?


Really? I was thinking it would be pertinent to miss them ;)

You can get in if you miss the talks right?


Talks start at 7:30 and you can still get in if you miss them :)

MattP: I have a linux desktop too.


Aren't you supposed to be on your honeymoon, Urbanwide? Just put the laptop away for a few days!


glad the talks start later cuz i felt well overdressed last time in my shirt n tie :)


Is there a function room in the lounge? Or is this just going to be held in a private area in the main bar (the marquee?)


Linux desktops are the future, man! Or are they?


Sorry I couldn't make it guys - especially Deb, I was looking forward to meeting you. My brother's family graduation party went on for a bit and I didn't have the heart to break away from everyone...even for geekery :)


Hi Imran, shame you couldn't make it - graduation has to come first really, I agree!

Looking forward to meeting you at some point anyway! Hopefully we can catch up next time, or at least chat before that even. I'm going to struggle to make opencoffee I'm afraid - all the best for the next one.



Deb, my contact info's all at, so maybe we can catchup before the next one :)
