[kwlug-disc] Meeting Monday will bring three years of linux Magazine and a few Wired for the taking

What I meant was, if a 'Computer Recycling Library' doesn't exist / want 
to keep them, they have a body of volunteers that may be interested in 
taking them home, rather than see them disposed.

Short magazine shelf life is probably largely only true for those mostly 
already in the know. Which I assume most of these volunteers are not.

Many things have not much changed in a very long time - Bash, DHCP, SSH, 
syslog, the list is very long. If a topic is new to you, it probably 
doesn't much matter how long ago it was written. If you didn't know that 
logging exists, most any old article on it will so inform you and get 
you going. Once you come across it, that is.
