*The model is still in “beta” (meaning it will probably break and be changed, and therefore shouldn’t be used by anyone expecting perfection)
Currently you can become a member by manually EFT of your membership fees every month (We are hoping to have our website subscription infrastructure setup very soon so everything can be managed automatically)
