It costs about $350 to register a non-profit corporation in Texas.
I'd be willing to help with this, but I'm not going to foot the entire
bill. If we could get 9 other people to pitch in $35 to the effort,
then we could get registered and at least have a legal standing.

BTW, this isn't a proposal. I'm just tossing the idea out there. We
really need to figure out where we should go at this point. I've been
with OpenNIC since the (near) beginning, and we are pretty much at the
same point as we were 10 years ago.
