  7. BUSINESS ARISING FROM REPORTS

      Surplus donated equipment continues to be used to repair member's machines free-of-charge.

      Most of the old equipment has now been tested and anything faulty or no longer of any use due to age discarded - a skip was hired from Clean Valley for that purpose.

  8. NEW BUSINESS

      Ross announced that he had acquired an ADSL connection and requested routing of his domain 'bunyip.apana.org.au' to his new static IP address. AP: Chris
