Hi everyone,

As mentioned back in March we've requested the team's allotment of disks 
and (300 x 64-bit Desktop DVDs, 100 x 64-bit Server DVDs) and they have 
arrived!  I'm taking care of distribution again for Southern California 
and Elizabeth is handling it for Northern California.

If you would like some disks, please contact both of us 
(nhaines at ubuntu.com and lyz at ubuntu.com) with your name, address and 
purpose for request.  (Need some for your school or library? Handing out 
at a small event?)  Depending on where you are one of us will ship you 
the disks.

If you are in the same area as someone else in the team who needs disks 
please try to request them together as Elizabeth and I are paying for 
these shipping costs out of pocket and it's cheaper to send larger 
packages than several small ones.

This is the only shipment the team gets per cycle, so please don't waste 
these disks and request only a limited number to suit your needs! 
Follow these tips to help stretch our supply:

1. At tech events, inform (maybe hand out cards with instructions?) 
users that they can download and burn an ISO: 

2. Burn ISOs as they wait! Bring along some blank disks and a system 
that can burn a disk at the event and give them a fresh copy

3. For handing out at other events, use the pressed disks as display 
copies and use our CD sleeves for burned copies: 

4. For installs and demos at events, try using a USB stick

NOTE: For larger conferences please contact Elizabeth with details so we 
can request an https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAtConferences conference 
pack plus disks AT LEAST 6 weeks prior to the event.

We have added this information to the bottom of 
so everyone will be able to keep track of the number of disks still
