Reschedule teleconferece for Sydney's FOSS4G bid

Cameron Shorter
Could we please reschedule teleconference. I can't make it - I have a
doctor's appointment I need to take my son to. I appologise for the
inconvenience.

I suggest, same time and place, but the following day:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?month=1&day=23&year=2008&hour=9&min=0&sec=0&p1=240
Wednesday 9am Sydney time.
Tuesday 5pm EST.

I don't see a problem having it the following day.  I'll inform the rest
