* All of the above, although selling merchandise isn't going to be that easy
for us seeing as we don't actually have any, although Alex, Kirsty and I have
been discussing designing some kind of AFFS t-shirt although, this is still a
project at quite an early stage. One other thought would be giving away copies
of Free software, does the OpenCD project have a stand yet? Also can you
explain more of what you mean for the final 2 items on the list? they would be 
something that would require more work than all of the above.

Tell people "AFFS stand in the .org village" should be good enough (and I think
that most people will find that easier to remember than a stand no.), Brian has
already said that we get a large poster so I would hope that nobody has 
difficulty finding us. (at least if they do I don't think it will be because of
something we have done wrong)
