An update for those who recall the parking fines issued to some attendees of
the August CLUG meeting.

I wrote a polite letter to the ANU parking people explaining that the
signage indicated that I had selected a 'Visitor' parking location and that
I had no means of knowing that 'Visitor' carries a different meaning in ANU
parking parlance.

I received a letter in reply quoting a large slab of section 10.2 of
something [gee, I forgot to read the copy of section 10.2 I carry around
with me] and some waffle about the rules having to be applied to everyone
equally [i.e. if we let you off, they'd all want to be let off].

The letter also explained that the parking officer who issued the ticket was
interviewed [Hey Bob, did you nail this one?   Yep, got him fair and
square!] and he confirmed that the car was parked 'illegally.'

So it has cost me sixty dollars.
