For that matter, it could be posted right here.  It's not that big.
The problem, though, is deciding who to send the paper copy to.  I
suppose folks who didn't want the paper copy could send e-mail to
usenix.org, but would that make too much work for someone?

Then there's the question of whether we want to provide ;login: free
to non-members.  Personally, I wouldn't mind.  It would provide some
good PR for the organization, and membership would still have its
privileges (Computing Systems, member discounts, etc.)

Dave Sill (de5 at ornl.gov)	  It will be a great day when our schools have
Martin Marietta Energy Systems    all the money they need and the Air Force
Workstation Support               has to hold a bake sale to buy a new bomber.
