It loooks like neither a speaker nor a booth will happen.

But...

If we have some suitable brochure that could be given out, *that*
could certainly go to a LUG booth.

My ideal would be something that fits on a doublesided sheet of
8.5x11" paper...

I was just looking at the list of items in the PR project...
<http://pgfoundry.org/docman/index.php?group_id=1000047>

The "lisa_06.pdf" file looks somewhat suitable, as does the 8 page
LISA_copious_final.pdf...

http://www.alberton.info/downloads/postgresql-cheat-sheet.png is
pretty neat.

There is supposedly something here; I can't access it...
