That would be great Kate. Mind you, I wasn't considering burning CD-Rs in
eXpo sized giveaway quantities - just thinking of taking a look so see if it
seemed like an interesting possible giveaway. If we went with it, we'd
definitely need to get some made by a presser, and I've no idea what the
lead time or cost is there - anyone ?
And talking of that - we should consider the eXpo giveaway policy. I gather
we've got a bunch of RH boxed sets and presumably will get some other bits
and pieces too. I don't know what's the right way to do it, but first come
first served is probably not best - maybe divide stuff up into batches for
each day or half day so we don't get rid of all the best stuff early ? Maybe
give away Demolinux or RH/Mandrake free CDs and sell boxed sets at a
reduced price to cover expenses of getting the freebies pressed ?
Don't jump down my throat if you don't like any of this - I'm just running
it up the flag pole at the minute, but eXpo is < 4 weeks away and we
probably need to start firming things up :-)
