  If Guy Edri agrees to burn the CDs, I see no problem. Guy, did you encode
all lectures already to the PC? If not, I suggest creating VCDs which are
playable on most DVD players. You'll need dvgrab, mencoder, vcdimager, and
cdrdao to complete this task under GNU/Linux.

  I am willing to keep the copies of the CDs at my disposal and burn copies.
Also, if it's really nessecary, I can convert DV->VCD during weekends.

  Instead of (or in addition to) using the technion broadcast server which
limits you to streaming only and currently works only inside the Technion
network, I suggest putting MPEG or DivX;) files online for download. Note
that each lecture will be several hundred megabytes, depending on
compression. I see www.haifux.org has nothing close the amount of diskspace
needed to host such a project. Maybe one of the linux-il corporate sponsors
could donate a server/HD for the purpose of hosting these lectures?
