A few people post things from time to time. Honestly, I think that it
would be wisest to: 

- remove the registration links, since new KWLUG users almost never
  need the functionality, but they register anyways thinking that this
  is how to become part of the community
- Remove the FLOSS Fund stuff if we feel that is an idea that has run
  its time
- Remove the Suggested/Requested topics. This is still relevant, but
  people do not use it. The existing entries are very old. (I still
  would like Chris Irwin to give his presentation on migrating config
  files, though. In fact a bunch of those presentations look good.)

I agree that our website is not a YAPU for meeting related material.
It is the canonical (sorry) place that look to when I am trying to
remember what presentations are scheduled, or what we presented in the
past.
