to set up a checking account we need to be a 'real' non-profit, which 
we're not yet. this(making evolt an official non-profit) was on my 
things to do list last year, which means it will happen this year for sure.

the best way for anyone(like chris and alan, god bless their souls) to 
contribute would be to buy the used parts yourselves and them send those 
parts to me.. or hire a lawyer to do all the paperwork for us ;)

well i appreciate it 500%, but i don't want it to seem like i'm whoring 
for contributions.

I'm more than willing to seem like i'm whoring for micro-brews though ;)

we've(the admin gang) been talking about this for at least a year and a 
half.. we've got some samples out there of shirts we made and a domain 
name to sell them from, just need someone to actually do it.

it doesn't sound liek a big deal selling t-shirts, but all the shit 
behind it can turn out to be quite a bit more than one person can handle..

that doesn't mean that any person stepping up and doing it wouldn't have 
the eternal appreciation of not only myself and the rest of the admin 
group, but the entire evolt.org community(in other words, it would be 
cool if someone could volunteer to look into this)

Seriously though, thanks so much ron, alan, chris and anyone else that 
can help out!! Its truely appreciated. :)

Feeling a bit like Jerry Lewis on a Labor Day Weekend, ;)
