Okay, next question would be then:  Do we want to be paying for large
booths at trade shows?  I agree, LinuxWorld was a _MADHOUSE_, but is it
something we want to spend donation money on?  ie, do people think the
trade shows are that terribly important to us?

(I was at LinuxWorld and I must say it was cool!  Worth going, and even
worth the financial nightmare it created in my life that is just now
getting resolved a couple months later..)

Ahh, the psychic sig generator strikes again!
