RE: [802SEC] CD-ROM Motion Draft
Roger, there is NO motion on the floor. I typically put out a draft motion
(as I have done today) for any comments before I actually send out a motion,
if there is enough time. Only the chair or vice chair can initiate an email
motion to the SEC.

Subject: Re: [802SEC] CD-ROM Motion Draft
I think there is a motion on the floor. However, if so, I don't
understand the following:
*Why isn't "+++" in the subject line?
*Why does the subject line include the word "Draft"?
*Why this motion dated Aug 24 even though it was announced Aug 28?
*what happened to Bob O'Hara's motion?
If this is a motion, then I vote "Disapprove". We don't need a CD-ROM
anymore, and the cost is too high in terms of:
*volunteer production labor
*distribution labor cost and associated Wednesday turmoil
*getting bugged to submit a voter list
