New info at

If you don't know what's at, then you should!!! It's the home of the Australian SQL Server User Group, of which the Adelaide group is a part. You should register there, and go back regularly to find out what's going on.

Today I added the December meeting, at which David Lean is presenting, plus details of the Launch events (21st and 22nd), and also created a new forum in which you can give me feedback on the Adelaide events. Feedback is great. My ego can cope with criticism, and is always happy to receive compliments. But without feedback, it's hard to know where to make things better. So get writing!

Also write about how to improve the website there, because if you think it could be improved, you might not be the only one.
