That is a good project. I pledged to them a couple of months ago.

I am working on a series (3?4?5?) of shows under the overall title 
"Freedom is Not Free" to talk about how people can and should support 
"Free Software". I had planned to record the first one this past weekend 
but a router dying on me got in the way. And I may not get ot it this 
weekend because I am scheduled to give a presentation at a Con. But I 
have mapped it all out and will get it in shortly. this is an example of 
one of the ways (financial) that people can give support.
