Yes.  I spoke with them at Linux Expo.

Not to be negative (ho ho), but not a chance, unless there are people here
with phenomenally deep pockets.

However, when I spoke to them they were very receptive to the idea of 
running BSD articles in the magazine, and possibly getting FreeBSD on 
their covermount CD ("If you like Linux, you'll love this").

If you've got an article idea, approach them and see if you can sell it.
As far as I know, Walnut Creek's offer to pay you whatever they pay you for
the article as well is still good.

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
