To be more precise: we are only allowed to carry over an amount
equal to about 2 months of operating income. Exceptions are made
occasionally on a case by case basis. At the moment, we try to discourage
multi-year subscriptions, but if only a few people do it, then it won't
hurt anything.

To Steve B.: Is it possible to print the current expiration date on
the CPN address label? Something like:

Rick Walker [exp 12/96]
2060 Oberlin Street
Palo Alto, CA 94306-1315

This might prevent a lot of worrying by members.

At the moment, I do not have a copy of the roster. You will need to
contact either Steve Baker (chief editor), or Kevin Snively
(sec'y/treas.) to get the current info. If your check cleared, and
you are currently getting issues, I wouldn't worry about it.
