Well, $60/volunteer if we were a non-profit or a school group,
otherwise it's closer to $120/volunteer.  I'm betting some of these
folks won't be very willing to fork over that much.  OTOH, some might
be willing to pick up the slack.

I forget if I mentioned, but I've also asked the CS Club @ UC Davis
to see if they'd help.

Anyway, at this point it's moot and off-topic, so I'll drop the
thread.  Email me off-list if you're interested in the topic. :)
