Well, I've never sunk a whole lot of time into thinking about
fundraising, but the immediate options that spring to mind are finishing
up and PayPal box/donation link in the *.e.o banner (the
stuff that will appear on every site).

I lost track of tagwear a long time ago, so if someone who was involved
can do a quick update we can decide if/how that's the way we want to go.

It would seem that we're also going to have to readdress the legal
status issue to track the funds.

So don't hold out, homey! I'm interested! What are your big ideas?
Premium m.e.o. accounts with domain names or something? Online bake
sale? Grand theft auto? ;)
