yup. Thing #1: Madhu's blog is hosted there http://www.madmanweb.com
(see bottom of right column).  perhaps the $3.90 was on his account (so
to speak)

yup Thing #2: according to Marlene back in december,
there was just such an affiliate arrangement offered by Vesana (in the
form of evolter Ben Varadi, back in 2002) and i assume accepted by

the deal was apparently never added to the donations & affiliates page,
and Ben was apparently rather disappointed -- can't blame him.  IMO the
deal should have been promoted then, and should be promoted now.

so, would someone in content please step up and add Vesana.com to the
help_support_evolt page?  somewhere right around where it says "We will
be adding to this list as new partnerships are formed" would be just
great :-)

if such a someone is willing to add the blurb but is bogged down
soul-searching for *just* the right wording, feel free to shamelessly
lift and twist the copy from: http://www.nten.org/discounts#vesana
another nonprofit-friendly organization with whom Vesana apparently
has an identical arrangement.
