O'Reilly (the book publisher) has generously offered to send us
some free technical manuals, although I think they are supposed to be
for review purposes.
If you are a paid up member of WLUG, and would like to see us acquire
a book of your choosing (and you are prepared to write up a small review
of it), visit http://www.wlug.org.nz/WantedBooks
and edit the page.
(There is a link to O'Reilly's online catalog... the page linked to is
about 400 kB).
