I'd like to 2nd Roger's point on this matter.  I think that all of our paid
would benefit greatly from having direct access to all existing published
for reference purpose at the meeting, and I'm sure even our voting members
unanimously approve this motion if it meant they didn't have to wait until
late Wed 
afternoon and miss some of their meeting to get their copy.  All of our
are paying $75 apiece to support Get802, they should at least be entitled to
CD-ROM as a token of that support.  Let's be fair, guys.   :-)

Thanx,  Buzz
