Note this is DRAFT for announcement.
Flyer isn't present at the URL shown ... yet.
If I don't get an updated flyer, I may make some edits on the older
version and then use that.
I did include mention of the door prizes - but kept it very brief.
Anyway, I hope to have the "final" version out
this evening / tonight, or 2007-11-07 A.M.
I also tried to better approximate RFC 1153 message digest format,
as that may make reading in many mail clients a bit more convenient
and user-friendly.

Bay Area Linux Users Group (BALUG)[1] 2007-11-20:

 "Free Software, The Environment, Social Welfare, and the Digital Divide"

For our 2007-11-20 BALUG meeting we are pleased to present:

James Burgett, Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC)[2]:
"Free Software, The Environment, Social Welfare, and the Digital Divide"
flyer[3] (PDF) to help promote the event

James will recount the path ACCRC has taken as it's grown in the last
five years to reclaim and reuse computers, peripherals, and other
electronic devices people donate.  In general, ACCRC gives computers
to individuals and worthy organizations without charge or strings.
ACCRC uses Linux on the systems it gives away and has developed quite
a bit of expertise in installing various Linux distros on various
(old) hardware.
