It's not going to happen in the foreseeable future. Anyone believing
otherwise at this stage would be surely kidding themselves? (Just being
realistic here)

We could also find out who is buying to support evolt.org and who is buying
because they also want a calendar (I don't use a mousepad or calendar FWIW).
Are we better off if people directly contribute the $10?

And while a calendar at your desk is going to (to some extent) market the
name, there might be more efficient options (postcards/packs distributed to
programming and design studios, etc).

Again, I'd strongly suggest that we push hard on MEO people for donations
for the exceptional offering they're getting. $1/month x 1000 users x 12
months = $12k. And $1/month is virtually nothing.
