Hi Progsoc,

Tonight the monthly IT security and other things mini-convention Ruxmon is on.

  Starts at: 6pm
  Location: Google building in Pyrmont

Send an email to the address as directed below to say you are coming. 
I know it is after the time/date listed, but have never had a problem 
previously sending in registration late.

Just tell the security guard at the front desk you're here for 
Ruxmon, and he'll tell you where to go (I mean, he'll tell you which 
floor to catch the lift to).


PS. his event runs on the first Friday of every month.

>Enhancements to the Windows 8 Kernel Pool Allocator - Tarjei Mandt
>In Windows 8, Microsoft introduces an array of enhancements to the
