Thats OK Zenon. As long as whoever runs the site has time
enough to maintain it! My offer still stands though, and
actually, I was thinking of collecting $5 each (voluntary,
of course) to get a domain name.

Jeez.. do you think that could really happen?
Actually, I guess i *maybe* could see how, but that
still is not cool. Even though I want very much to 
host the web site, I will of course back down on my
offer, especially since I have been a member for
only 2 days! >:)

Isn't someone on this mailing list already an Internet provider. I thought
i found (GulfNet) as one of the users home pages. Well, anyway, if they are
on here, wouldn't they be able to offer discount rates and stuff? I really
don't know alot about ISPs, so maybe this is impossible.. an idea, anyway.

I personally think ads are a bad idea, *UNLESS* they are only
space-related. For example, get Nasa, the NSS, and others to
sort of advertise. Maybe we could work out some deal where all
the major space sites (Nasa, LIT, Seds, NSS, whatever else) 
advertise on each others page. This would be good for the 
scientific world. If you want to know how it would be good,
well, I searched for many days in the past looking for space
web sites and such, but I only found star trek stuff and LIT.
I never heard of Seds and NSS before Zenon (thanx, Zenon!)

Those are my thoughts...
