Re: Using Dapper sleeves. Not a bad idea, really, as long as we black out the version number ;-)
Well, how about if we're optimistic and go for 50? I'd be willing to buy them and burn them if someone else would take care of the labels.
Should we burn more than just x86 cds? I don't know that 64-bit is really worth the disadvantages to be handing them out to people who don't know better...Maybe a few PPC ones?

That works for me :)

personally I use whatever the latest stable release of Ubuntu is.

I'll bring my box of Dapper CDs - we can throw out the disks and just
use the cardboard sleeves.  Last year, CINLUG gave out about 25 disks or
so - I wouldn't anticipate a huge number of disks need to be made or
given away, especially since the Fiesty release is just around the
