Why use all that paper ?
Why not come up with the ILUG monthly Linux CD...
Have a 'software' directory, which contains the latest versions of
a standard set of applications that regularly change (kernel, apache, etc..)
A 'mirror' directory which has something new and big every month,
ie: CPAN archive, TeX archive, X contrib, etc.. (have an online vote
as to what goes onto the CD for next month).
A 'security' directory which contains the errata/updates releases for
the distros (Redhat / Mandrake / Debian)
A 'games' directory with FAQs / Demos / code
And then an 'Articles' directory with FAQs, Articles, Interviews, stuff
and targetted at the Irish linux community..
With 650Mb to play with - you could easily create the 'killer cd' that
no Linux head is seen without..
Save on paper (especially that glossy stuff that mags 'have' to use).
Just my virtual 0.02 euro worth.
