Subject: Bashing victim told to leave the country
He was viciously bashed to near death by three neo-nazis. Studying in Melbourne, Minh was punched, stabbed and had a brick broken over his head -- now as Minh visited his mum in Vietnam while recovering, his student visa has been cancelled.
Last week, Minh was travelling back to Melbourne for the start of uni when Immigration officials said his visa had been cancelled. Without letting him know, it seems they changed the expiry date of his student visa to a year earlier (it is technically still valid according to the documents) -- meaning Minh was ordered to return to Vietnam immediately or be arrested.
I'm shocked and ashamed that our government could do this to him. After seeing the horrific news of Minh's bashing on the news last year, I knew I had to help in any way I could. So I offered free piano lessons. Since then, I've been helping Minh recover from the trauma of being bashed through music. We hope to even have a concert back in Melbourne once his visa has been re-instated.
Minh is just one year away from finishing his Advanced Diploma of Accounting. He has lived here with his brother for the last six years, loves uni and only missed classes just after the beating left him in hospital. All he wants to do is graduate this year, and start putting this shocking bashing behind him.
Every day, Minh still lives in pain. His cheekbone was smashed and he's still missing teeth -- he's got dental work scheduled, but that needs him to be allowed back into the country.
Please sign my petition asking Scott Morrison to not allow this cruel visa cancellation to go through -- and allow Minh to finish his studies in Australia.

> Any suggestions on what netbook to buy?
Did you have any success? I am probably in the same boat, my little
Samsung 10 inch netbook is not getting younger, and I had a scare
recently (but it was a lose connector only, I have it quite often in a
bicycle basket - not the smoothest way of transport)
I took Chris' suggestion and found
I just wonder how to use the touchscreen efficiently. Does anyone has
experience with a notebook touchscreen under Linux? Which desktop do
But the model has not enough battery for your liking, I guess:
"i'm getting 2~4h depending on usage. charging time is about the same"
Another minus is the screen: "annoyingly bright and reflexive" but
11.6" is a good display size, I think.

problem seems the boot complication and the camera does not work..
Hi all (and happy new year!),
Does anyone have any pointers on setting up an office for 3-4 staff with a
simple solution, preferably open-source based?
I'll be setting up a new office in about 4-6 weeks; I expect I'll have
Internet with someone like TPG, which includes both Internet and a phone
I imagine I could run a second line using VoIP (with some degradation of
audio quality); presumably Asterix or something similar could manage 3-4
phones running over 1-2 lines like this.
Is there a package/solution people recommend? I'd like something reasonably
resilient and easy to set up - I don't want to spend hours playing around
with it, but the idea of an open system I can customise and extend is
