Fellow PostgreSQL-lovers:

As I mentioned a month back or so, a MySQL advocate will be presenting
at the Salt Lake Linux User Group in December.  I still haven't had a
confirmation (the leaders are very slow), but I'm going to go ahead and
proceed as if I will be giving a follow-up presentation in January.

I have some requests. ;-)

I would very much like to be able to hand out CDs to those that would
like them.  I recently purchased a Powerbook with a SuperDrive, which
means I can burn CDs at 8x and DVD-Rs at 2x, IIRC, so that's one
possibility.

However, I wouldn't mind getting any leftover CDs from Josh's Comdex
show.  Possible?

What other possibilities exist for CDs?

I would also like to get my hands on these two documents.  They would
prove to be very valuable both in writing my presentation and to hand
out to the audience.  Where can I find #4, and would it be possible to
get #3 once it is done?  Even already existing brochures and the like
would be nice.

These and other promotional gear (books and whatnot) would also be nice
as giveaways.  What hoops would I have to go through to get some?
