    So...my brand new laptop doesn't have sound today. It was working fine yesterday and today, nope no sound. Did everything on the DELL website, called them, restored it to factory settings...nothing worked... At least it's still under warranty so they are sending someone Tuesday to have a look at it...*fingers crossed*

    At least it was an easy fix!

    Peregrine's laptop had screen issues a while ago and he had to send it in to a repair centre in NSW, who then took ages to fix the darn thing and send it back. Funnily enough though, it ended up being me without a laptop, because he just started using mine

    G'day all! Just flew back from a trip to the great city of Melbourne, and boy are my arms tired!

    .....

    Annnnyway, I had meant to post last week to try and organize a mini meetup, but the forums were down when I tried prior to the trip.

    If you did go to Carlton Vs Collingwood however, we were in the same stadium at least! So we will always have that time we spent together.

    Thought I'd post here a few touristy pictures:

    I never felt safe walking in front of these, felt like a tram to the slaughter.



    No idea where this was, your town was great for wandering around exploring. My group was never defeeted by the long stretches as we walked around drunk!



    Boat!



    The MCG! The Blues won rather handily, I had though Collingwould have won though!



    Also, for future reference, would people have wanted to meetup? I'm not as active (a grave understatement ) as I used to be, but I'll probably be heading back to Melbourne next year sometime. Would be great to mix up the plane ol' trip with some Gitp folk!

    There was a vague idea to have another meetup this year (in the tradition of the one we had last year)... but the thread kinda died.

    I did most of the organising for last years' trip, but since we wouldn't be able to attend one this year, I didn't bother getting involved, and no one else did anything.

    I would definitely be up for something next year though. By that point, both of us should have jobs and a steady income!

    Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to attend anything not held in Brisbane because I can't afford travel.
    But then, I might be able to next year, so one never knows.

    Edit: And what am I still doing awake? I promised myself I'd go to bed early!
    Goodnight everyone!

    This sounds like an acceptable plan!

    To be honest, I wasn't in melbourne most of this week anyway, was in ballarat, or working...So it probably worked out for the best.

    And I am holding you to both those drinks now :P

    Depending on time of year I can manage either Melbourne or Sydney (but please not Sydney, Sydney is the worst place in the world ).

    On the other hand, my loss would be no great casualty so feel free to proceed as planned.

    (Of course I can also manage Bendigo and Canberra, but I don't think that would be as popular with the other posters )

    If one rotten apple spoils the barrel, then I'm afraid that a handful of good apples aren't enough to rescue a barrel fool of rotten apples that's made of earwax.

    But remember not to take me too seriously on this matter - the only reason I don't also dislike Melbourne is cause it has AFL matches regularly (and more of its historic architecture intact). I'm just not much of a concrete jungle person.

    Come on guys. It's Australia. If there's gonna be an Australian meet-up, there's going to be a lot of travelling for a lot of people involved. For sheer Playgrounder concentration, Melbourne's probably gonna be the best bet I reckon (sadly...). Or possibly Sydney. Maybe we should get a rolecall for each...

    Well, I'm in Bendigo for some parts of the year (Uni, some holidays) and in Canberra for others (holidays!).

    I also have no job and no money, so the limit of my travel is to the nearby cities.

    It's one way to make the travel aspect fair though it would limit the meetup to those of us with the ability to travel, which wouldn't be as much fun.

    I wouldn't have a problem with Melbourne or Sydney. I think the highest concentration of Australasian Playgrounders is Melbourne, but I know Sydney pretty well (I have family there). And considering we flew to Brisbane for the last one, it's clear we don't have much problem with travel. Though I have to say, Melbourne is a shorter trip...

    By nearby cities, I'm definitely including Melbourne and Sydney (and a few more out of the way ones that probably aren't relevant, like Geelong or whatever).
