So today my feed reader chimed in to note that LWN had a new article up:
"Closing out the 2.6.28 merge window," supposedly detailing "significant
changes which were merged after last week's
summary<http://lwn.net/Articles/303609/>was written." Sounds great,

last week's writeup.
Now, I'm not opposed to giving them money, really-- no, in general, I find
LWN's articles to be of high quality. When I can read them. But I'm
notoriously forgetful (ADHD :/ ). I've forgotten to pay my mobile bill and

caught a nifty tidbit on their subscriptions page and got to thinking.
"We offer a competitive rate for university/non-profit subscriptions..." it
reads. Incidentally, that's exactly what we are. Could we; should we;
might we consider trying to get one of these group accounts? I was a little
reluctant to just throw this out there, but such a move would benefit more

encountered that very same frustration at being denied what might be an
interesting article for a month (by which point you've forgotten it
Thoughts on this?
