We have ads now?

The short answer: yes, but we’re doing strictly non-commercial, non-bought ad space.

The long answer: for a little bit, we’re going to be trying an ad trade with Ubuntu User magazine.  We’re getting a full-page ad in their print magazine, they’re getting an ad in FCM, and we’re trading site links.  Rest assured, FCM is not taking bought-for ads. :)
