Hi Benjamin,

As I see it there is a dearth of information on the
www.adelaide.air.net.au site about actually linking people together. I'm
not sure this list is the place for that either (in the context of south
australia), but that's perhaps beside the point.

What I was thinking is putting together a few CGI's to let people register
themselves as being interested in joining up with others in a wireless
fashion, against their suburb.

The main criteria for me to do this are:

1. Time (Ahh, I don't need *that* much sleep do I?)
2. Need (Do people want this?)
3. Suburb list

I had a bit of a search last night but wasn't able to track down a machine
readable list of suburbs. I didn't look far though.

What would be really nice is a CSV file, with suburbs, postcodes, and
maybe latitude and longitude. Then we can get really funky in the
graphical representation type stakes.

Yes, I'm volunteering :-) If points 2 can be shown, and point 3 can be
provided, then I will sacrifice some of point 1 :-)
