Pony-tails and "stereotypical" geeks are a bit thin on the ground at CLUG,
where we seem to tend to professionals and students with a bit of fitness
about them :-) But otherwise the descriptions are pretty much correct...  The
internet is also connected in the Installfest, too, and we substitute sausages
for pizza because it's during the day and we're Australian.

Hope this helps,
