linux.conf.au 2010 will be held in Wellington from 18 January to 23 January

LCA delegates are a helpful bunch

Organising linux.conf.au is a lot of fun, partly because we have such a great community. For example, someone took the time to point out how wrong we were in saying that New Zealand power is 240V:

Actually, it is 230 volts +/-6% (ie anything within 216..244 is within
spec). 230V is also the standard in Australia and Europe. The change
from 240V was made in 1997.

So there you have it, 230V +/- 6% since 1997, thanks Russell!
