[ale] ale-NW bash presentation: need copies...

Based on all the work you are putting into this bash programming
presentation, 40 copies of the "book" may not be enough: I know it's
convinced me to make the trip to attend my first ALE NW meeting!
I have a suggestion for addressing your challenge of sharing the
documentation without paying for the logging of a small forest:
What about just printing 1 set of transparencies for the meeting and
show them with a second, seperate Over Head projector... perhaps get a
volunteer to assist with the Vanna White thing (high heels and blonde wig
optional, of course).
As suggested earlier, also make the handout materials avialable on
line a few days before the presentation. That way anyone interested can
review them and decide for themselves if they want go to the expenses of
creating a hard copy for the meeting and future reference.
Even if the transparencies cost $0.50 a page to produce, your costs
would be <$20.00. People at the meeting would still have the benefit of
seeing the complete docs while several dozen pine trees breath a heavily
oxygenated sigh of relief.
Hope the ideas help! Looking forward to the 20th!
