As easy as it sounds to shuffle talks around, it's not. Paul's inviting of the 
PCUG people to talk at the June CLUG meeting ended up with gaping holes as 
people pulled out and shuffled and declined for July and August. Thankfully, a 
number of people stepped up and filled those gaps at short notice, but that's 
not the case every month. It's only this month that I've finally managed to get 
back on track and pin someone down for September and October ( I like to keep a 
month ahead, which allows for a sudden avalanche of work to appear on my desk 
and not have it interfere with CLUG organising stuff, as small as it may be.).

We are fairly restricted in what we can do in terms of spicing the current 
clug.org.au page up, as (IIRC) the website is hosted on the ozlabs webserver 
which does not support PHP or MYSQL, So that kinda restricts us to static HTML.

Tony Breeds and I are working on preparing the clug.anu.edu.au site to be the 
new CLUG website, but I doubt it will be ready in the next week or two. Things 
may change, now that I've wrapped up some major projects, but again, work at 
this time of year has a nasty habit of creeping up on me.
