$10 a month is expensive for me (Martin: you could host a small Octoberfest with

at $5 i could take it. for $3 i'd be happy to pay the full year in advance and
feel relieved by helping evolt.org stay strong.

This is a nice idea, but i think its our further discussion. IIRC the proposal

But I could be wrong...
