We received $40 in donations at the IF yesterday.  After pizza and soda 
costs, $10 remains for LUGOD.  I'll bring it to a meeting eventually, 
unless someone wants it sooner than that.

After some thought, I decided not to ask for donations for giving away 
distribution cds.  This probably goes explicitly against many of the 
copyrights, and I didn't feel right about it in general.  Instead, I 
asked ALL installees to donate to LUGOD, suggesting ~$5, whether they 
took home cds or not.  Most were very happy to do so.  If they wanted 
lunch too, I asked for a separate donation for that, and again that 
seemed to work fine.  Any thoughts?
