\I hate sydney.
I'd go to one in Newcastle.
and who is to say that someone wouldnt just use this meetup to stake out whats inside someones house? the police are useless here in tracking down stolen items so I'm sure I'd never see it again, I'm not going to take my expensive gear out in public and drag it down to sydney just to show it off to some thieves.
The meetup would need to be about conversations and ideas and we already have that on diyaudio.com anyway.
Not to mention the cost of doing an actual meetup in Australia, everything is so expensive here!
In the USA and europe things like this are much cheaper to do and have a much larger collection of users, In Australia two people who want to meetup could be 500km apart from each other, Its just unfeasible.
When I feel like throwing up and going to sydney I'll let you know.
Go ahead and be nasty just because you can
I'm stating fact. I get nervous and sick just thinking about going into Sydney.
Its obvious that your group is meant for people who you already trust, if you don't believe me then try and hold a public group for once and everyone in your group will shy away from it because they know the truth, there is simply too many opportunistic theives in this country for us to be able to hold public events like this.
Prove. Me. Wrong.
a lot of nice equipment there, I even see the 4U rackmount case from jaycar that I cannot seem to make into a project.
but I've also just been called a sad sack of ****, so who am I to believe here? are you guys nice and kind or are you just like regular aussie folk? I can't stand that kind of ****, if I'm spoken to in that manner in public I'll flip my lid and kill someone.
**** all of you aussie *****, I come on here to talk to the americans anyway exactly because of this ********.
so none of you thought it was strange or overly patriotic that I had the **** blasted out of me just because I was cynical of a city?
