    Thanks to web.com idiocy our cgi and mail service is messed up right now, since about 12:30 last night. If you tried to register and it did not work, we have a trouble ticket open, should be fixed shortly.

    New questions: where do we pay? and since my business partner isn't on the board yet, does she count as a guest or do I sign her up separately?
