Helpful info, thanks!

I guess we should have one central distribution point here in the US.
Shipping within the US is pretty cheap (shipping to and from Canada
not so much, or so I've heard). I can do it if there's no central
repository for these things yet. Steven mentioned he already has a few
100 and SteveC may have more. I'll ping Steve and see if he has a lot
of them. I also remember Thea sent a lot of stuff to the GeoIQ office
when we had the hack weekend there back in Feb. What was that and
where is it now?
