Throwing it out there - uni exams finish in about 3 weeks (I think most unis are the same as mine). After then I have about 4 weeks off. People up for some sort of todo then?

I finish in exactly two weeks from tomorrow... I will be free (other than working full time, which I do during semesters anyway) from the 21st.

also, dedalus, did you organise yourself going skiing? I can't be arsed sending a pm... my friends were ambivalent about extra people crowding our place during that week if you hadn't (I think facebook said something about you going with uni at some point, but I pay little attention to it).

Can we have a meeting midweek sometime please? Or in the evenings on the weekend? I've missed a couple of meetups now and I am sad as I have not seen you all for a *long* time.

Yeah, I'm going down with the uni instead for the weekend. I would really love to go down with you, but current finances can't make it, especially as I'd have to pay for Laura as well :( . Next year, maybe; I'll hopefully be a bit better off for money.

And yeah, definitely cool with a meetup, and I'm pretty much free all holidays :) :) :) . So ultimately it comes down to what suits everyone; ACU says that weekend days are off?

Well, anyone want to have lunch on the 18th (is a Friday)? I am taking the day off work to go in to the city for an exam which supposedly finishes at 12:30 (hint, I have not lost a mark in this subject yet and spent < 1 hour on the last assignment)... Don't know anyone else doing that subject, so I'll just be going back home/to the gym at uni afterwards if I make no other plans.

Edit: Isn't at the same time I'll be down there, too? Anyone else up for a meetup in Jindy in late July? :P

We're down there July 30th till Aug 1st. If you're there then, that'd be friggin awesome. We're going to Thredbo, meeting up somewhere would be quite cool.

I would come up on the 18th, but I'll still have 2 exams at that point in time so I'd better not... How about after the 23rd sometime?

I'll be down from the 25th-1st... Usually spend more time at Thredbo than Perisher. So yeah, official Snowy Mountains meetup is on the cards.

In Sydney... the cost of a return train ticket to town hall + lunch, usually.

I dare say if anyone else wants to meet up with dedalus and I in the snowy mountains it will cost a bit more :P

I will probably be in Sydney from the 18th-21st, but at Supanova on the 19th and 20th and at something else on the evening of the 18th so lunch on the 18th is not entirely impossible for me (although I haven't booked transport or accommodation yet).

If you're going to the Snowies, you could always swing by Canberra on the way down or back ...

Older. I graduate next year. I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna go to UNSW or just stay closer to home and go to Newcastle Uni.

I will be at Jindabyne from the 20th to 24th of July. Pretty sure our school group is going to Perisher each day, so if anyone will be there then, MEETUPS WEWT!

Brilliant, that's squarely in school holidays. Mr. Dedalus, you have exquisite timing.

Also, Erasmus (I read your name as "modulo Erasmus") broken legs are, from experience, not fun. And I only broke one bone.

That would contain a lot of awesome.

On related news, in 2 weeks time my girlfriend and my sister are going up to see waiting for godot at the opera house (birthday present for both of them). I offered to drive them up and back; it's a matinée. This means I will be in Sydney for a good few hours, with no plans as of yet. Anyone else free?

Date is the 10th for the record. *edited because I can't use a calendar*.
