Those are all really great ideas and I'm sure there are many more that people
would like to ask and answer.

My thought here is that this would be really good stuff to put on the CLUG ANU
Portal - http://clug.anu.edu.au/.  You can register a username and password
and then post topics there.  This way they get Googled, they stay there in an
easy-to-find place, they stay current and people can easily link to them.

I suspect this is one of the CLUG's underused resources but one that has great
potential.  I'm as guilty as anyone of not adding stuff to it, so getting the
word out is a good start :-)

Have fun,
