Hiya THB & NovaCoder, after downloading some PDF files from the website and seeing how good this all looks, i might also whip my WHDLoad A1200 as well.. No guarantee's because i need to do a lot of study work this weekend, but if i get everything done i will be there for the first time

And the guy who runs the event, Barry R Woodfield, i "swear" i have met that guy before somewhere!?!?!?!?.. i know his face, but from where?

This Thursday's MAUG meeting is shaping up to be a big one, The following is from an email recieved today from the club secretary:

Quote:
That's right! We have an awesome break-up party planned at this years last
MAUG!!

Why will it be so awesome? Cause the Syntax Party Crew will be there to
show off demos!!!

The who? Haven't seen them? Well here's a short promo:

===============================
SYNTAX DEMO PARTY 2008!
Australia's largest coding, gfx
and music tracking party for
Oldskool & nuskool platforms
www.syntaxparty.org
===============================

Come to MAUG and see the party crew in action for an exclusive special
treat for MAUG members not to be seen anywhere else! Just back from
overseas and we managed to secure a booking for our break-up. Are we good
to you or what! You've not seen such an exclusive since the days of the
CUAmiga and AmigaFormat coverdisk demos I bet! And that retro feeling will
keep on flowing at MAUG.

Just as a teaser you're going to see a MiniMig in action doing demos! An
A500 and the greatest demo machine of all, the beloved A1200.

Okay that's the big news. As is customary we will also have the usual
assortment of party food around the tables for the picking.

But wait! There's more! Still after an AmigaOS4 machine? Well we are going
too see a live Sam440ep in action! Running Linux, AROS and now just
recently AmigaOS4 this is the new OS4 machine. See here for more:
http://acube-systems.biz/eng/sam.php

If that's not all, the club AmigaOS4.1 order should be ready. So we might
also see an AmigaOS4.1 install fest! Nice icing on the cake it would be.

Either way, I told you it would be awesome. So come along to MAUG and have
a great time! We've planned one. :-D
This Thursday the 4th of December, Kellaway community centre hall, Kellaway avenue Moonee Ponds. Meeting should start at 8:00pm

Good stuff guys, now we just need Blade, whiteb and muzkat to show up and we will have a Melbourne EAB get together going. More than we can say for the slack UK guys who didn't even manage to have a get together yet.

the only thing missing will be MorphOS, do any members have Efika or Pegasus running MorphOS??

Start work at 6AM on friday, that will be a bit interesting!!! (looking at 1-2 hours sleep, probably best not to bother sleeping at all!!)

@NovaCoder

Bayswater far? You know the last committee meeting was up near Bendigo!!

I will be coming along to this one. Should be interesting to see the demos.

@mihcael

Think someone has brought along Morphos before, but it was a little while ago. I downloaded the classic version ages ago, but seeing how long it took me to install OS4, I wouldn't hold any hopes of me installing it this year!

@whiteb

No one was disappointed with the minimig, I think ppl were just busy doing their things. I for one thought it was good to see it in action. Has been a lot of hardware being fixed up and such recently.
