If you just renewed your existing account, thank you very much! You're good for another year.
Important Registration on this site is a two-step process. The order which you register with is not important, but both steps must be completed.
If you complete one or the other step and find yourself back here, then do the other step.
One Step: Create your Username and enter a valid email account using the form at the bottom of this page. When you do so, I will get an email that a new account has been created, and you will get an email telling you that you have to wait for me to authorize your account. If you create your account before paying for it, then do The Other Step.
The Other Step: Click on the "Buy Now" button here:
When you do so, you will be taken to a PayPal page where you can complete the payment and enter an email account. I will get a message from PayPal that someone has paid for an account. When I receive notification from PayPal that you have paid for your account, I have to manually activate it and you will get an email with further instructions.
Subscriptions are $10 per year through PayPal. Please use the same email address for the PayPal payment and your username email account. Otherwise, I get confused as to which payment applies to which username.
If you pay for your account first from PayPal, you will be brought to this page. If that happens, fill out the form at the bottom of this page according to the instructions above.
Almost all of the time this will happen quickly, unless I am on a road trip, or fishing, or sleeping, or out of cell phone range, or my phone is off. I'll do my best to keep the human component as error-free as possible.
