And of course you are welcome to.

I recommend either the quarter-sheet format I used, or trifold flyer
format, and personaly prefer the former -- on grounds of psychology:
People walk away from trade shows (and conferences) with large numbers
of 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, and they all tend to end up in piles and

The quarter-sheet flyers are small enough for back pockets, wallets, or 
refrigerator magnets without difficulty.  I recommend taking a master
sheet to FedEx Kinko's and printing onto light pastel-coloured papers,
with yellow, light green, light blue, light reds, and orange all working
well.  You want to avoid just using default-white copy paper.

And me.  As a graphic artist, I make a good sysadmin.  ;->

That's why I simply found a collection of Tux art, and grabbed that JPEG
for the occasion.  (CABAL has no special claim to it.)

After wrestling for hours with OO.o Writer to produce that thing, I
think I'd be inclined to try Lyx or Scribus, next time.  OTOH, at least
.swx files are widely readable.
