I was a "Charter" member back in 1995. They made all kinds of
promises about testing tools, special discounts, and free

Several months ago I was again invited to be a "charter" member.
I wrote a polite letter back to them asking what has changed over
the years, explaining my previous disappointment. They have not
given me the courtesy of a reply.
I'd save your money. Go the the magazine rack and check out the
commercial magazines. You'll make better use of your money.
