Nigel Walker is doing the conference CDs... 

But we need to find someone locally to do this as Nigel is based in Pretoria
meaning shipping costs. 

P O Box 560
South Africa

Tel: +27 12 667 2074
Fax: +27 12 667 2766
E-mail: nigel at doctech.co.za 
Web: www.doctech.co.za

We are using the chief directorate surveys and mapping (CDSM) to cut some

We are providing the CDs and they are printing and cutting them for us. 

I will look around for some other options...

Thanks for the offer of help guys.
I've updated the wiki we are using to track the building of our LiveDVD 
to include burning the DVD where I've documented the requirements we are 
looking for. How much of this is achievable?


* Burn onto a DVD
* Graphics to be printed onto the other side with a suitable logo and 
contents. A simple one colour print run will be sufficient.
* Target print run of at least 100. If budget permits, 250 would be 
better. It would be good to give one to all local delegates who want one.

* We need to know when we need to hand over the ISO image so that it can 
be burned.
* The more time we have, the more testing we can do on the image and the 
more polished it will be.
** We can hand the image over on Tuesday 23 September, but would prefer 
if we had till Thursday 2 October.

Potential Printers:

 From the 2008 Local Organising Committee:
* Heindrich Du Plessis
* Burnie / Inge, have a list of service providers that is being used for 
the conference CDs?

Tim Bowden has found someone as well ...
