maybe i missed something, but didn't we have some kind of "i'd be willing  
to help others buy a gta04" rally, when it became clear, that the group  
tour would not yield the necessary amount of orders?

to be honest, i have no problems donating another 60€ or so, but i  
certainly wouldn't buy a t-shirt.
