Hi, I live near the border of Camberwell and Burwood, Melway 60G4, Australian Map Grid 332140 E 5809620 N (interpolate between red AMG grid lines in the directory), Lat -37.8454 Long 145.0922. I was able to transform the AMG grid coordinates using the Redfearn's Formula calculators at <http://www.auslig.gov.au/geodesy/datums/redfearn_grid_to_geo.htm> and <http://www.auslig.gov.au/geodesy/datums/redfearn_geo_to_grid.htm>.

I currently own a Power Macintosh 7300/200 with Mac OS 9.1. In March 2003 I intend to replace this by building a Mandrake Linux 9.0 computer. I am interested in setting up a TCP/IP wireless network with Melbourne Wireless.

I studied Maths, Physics, and Chemistry at Matriculation in 1962, and have worked as a book editor, computer salesman, and technical writer contractor, at present employed 'permanently' as a technical writer.

I contributed the instructions for converting between Australian Map Grid coordinates (Melway) and geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) to the Connecting to the Network page of the TheEvolvingFAQ.
