It's reeeeeaal soon now. You should go.
Syntax Party 2016 tomorrow!
Flashback 2015 happened last weekend. It rocked!
Massive thanks to Defame for the best party in aages (well, since Syntax!)
Come to Syntax 2015! November 13th syntaxparty.org
Syntax 2012 is on next weekend! See you there!
... deja vu, anyone? I should really add crap here more often.
By the way, major renovations await this site. But I've already said too much...
Syntax 2011 is on this weekend! See you there!
Wow. Flashback was awesome! Ten tons of awesome! Well done to the Defame guys on their first party... we'll be back for sure.
Someone went and changed the Flashback Party URL. Tsk, tsk. Well we're linking properly now ;)
Our main prod for the party is progressing pretty well, just seems like there's not much time left before the party!
Looks like we know where we'll be next 11th/12th/13th of June. Flashback Party!
....and Syntax Party was a success. Awesome time had by all, especially the alarm system ;) (Thanks Spoony!)
Keep your eye out for Syntax 2010, coming to a Melbourne near you.
Syntax Party absoluteley ruled!!!1 If you missed out, I highly recommend coming next year!
cTrix made the soundtrack for a quality ADF demo called "Smugglers On Acid" - check it out here!
Syntax Party is fast approaching! Be there!
The word on the street is that Syntax Party 2009 is in the works.
beachparty. 'nuff said.
Syntax Party absolutely rocked! If you didn't go, make sure you do next year.
At Syntax, our demo helped launch System Of Sound, a tracking/demo/etc group for oldskool computers based in Melbourne.
Syntax Party 2008 is on in 3 days!
Get your arse to Melbourne
The future of the .au xmas compo is uncertain at this point.
What exactly will happen next is not set in stone yet, but here's the reasoning:
With Syntax Party now happening in November, there's not going to be a productive void in Australia at this time of year any more.
I have doubts that most local sceners will have the time to make productions for two competitions in close succession.
Syntax Party doesn't allow remote entries like the .au xmas compo does. However, Beach Party 08 did allow remote contributions and was a great success, even though the number of productions was quite low.
Perhaps the best way forward for the Australian demoscene is to put the .au xmas competition to rest, and use the time and resources that went into it for making Beach Party a bigger and better demoscene event.

What a bunch of retards.
ript would like to tell you:
I'm back. Breakpoint rocked. Was good to see everyone again after so many years!
Life is starting to get into shape at home (not so many possessions in boxes any more!) ... I may even get some internet there and start some of those projects I've been talking about.:wq
BEACH PARTY 2008 was a great success... Big thanks to all the organisers - Anakirob, cTrix, not forgetting the super duper equipment fellows duncbot and ehendrikd!
No doubt there will be some kind of production blackout here for the next 6 weeks ... never fear, we'll be back.
(goodness, what a busy month this is)
The .au xmas compo results are in!
Ever had a letter from "The Domain Registry of America"?
I have, but didn't do anything with it. Well, I got angry.
(null) got one today, and decided that he'd spend 50 cents printing out his response and sending it back via snail mail:
I wonder if they'll put it on a notice board somewhere.
Also, don't forget to vote in the .au xmas compo!
.au xmas compo invitation released! Get it here!
Don't forget to check out the compo site.
The .au xmas compo 2007 site is up and running. Join the fun.
Site still undergoing overhaul. Will have useful information here one day soon.
You don't care about this piece of news.
In fact, you probably can't tell that this site is halfway though a major overhaul.
More overhauling to come.
Back from Syntax Party ... Congrats to cTrix and gaiaSword for putting together an awesome party! You better be there next time!
We've brought the prods page a little more up to date (making screenshots is so annoying I hadn't done it for a while). Stay tuned for the Syntax contributions which will be up soon.
Hooray for the upcoming Australian demo parties!

Timbaland is a grimey thieving fuckstick. All there is to know, courtesy of PWP.
Something is going on.
we haven't forgotten the .au xmas compo 2004 ... it's on again!
we are getting exceptionally drunk on saturday... are you?
an update of sorts =)
that might explain something, but then again, it might not.
added a graphics, renders and anims section.
our xmas demo will be added to the demos page soon (still trying to sort out why it crashes on some machines)
still alive - will be updating this site soon, since it needs it.
ript, floopyb and steve are now housemates in the new disasterarea laboratory! housewarming v2.0 was last saturday... it rocked, of course.
if you didn't come then you missed out =P
thanks to all those who entered the xmas compo in december, you rule.
null hates java, but he's still trying to code in it when he doesn't have to. ript's laptop broke & he still doesn't have a place to live or internet.
we're thinking about the second annual xmas demo compo already, and changing a lot of the rules from last time .........
A message from ript in helsinki:
I updated the site a little bit and renewed the domain (oops! it went down for a while =/)
I have access to cable in the flat i'm staying in (thanks baris!), so anyone who hasn't gotten any emails for a while will probably get one soon ... well, after the weekend, since i'm going away for it ;)
We've finished a 4k intro for breakpoint03...
it's nothing special, but now that we're warmed up, something good is bound to happen in the 64k or demo department.
John Howard, the Prime Minister of Australia, is a complete and utter fuckwit.
We've known this for years, mind you, but now it's really obvious.
we did a port. "Within Minutes" by mfx, now within windows.
get it here!
ript got bored and changed the site layout a little bit... the prods page was too image heavy - now it isn't.
sh0ck made a 0x7a69.au site where you will be able to catch up on shplorb, sh0ck & ript's european shenanigans this year.
ript might post stuff here too, but he might not.
The xmas compo is over, details here.
this webshite is still being made. it will always be in this state, so whatever.
