I'm not sure I understand the question. The only changes are that
network connectivity will be provided by a sponsor, under their
"help-the-community" program. There is an acknowlegment to the
sponsor on the splash page and in the faq. I'm shipping my computer
to the sponsor next week.
If I had wished to pursue a profit, there would have to be two
changes. One is I'd probably have to find another source of network
connectivity, or re-negotiate the current agreement with the
sponsor. The other thing required would be revenue of more than $0.
While I can afford spending on hardware writing custom software out of
my pocket, I can no longer afford network connectivity out of
pocket. This is the most graceful way I could find to continue running
the service, in the absense of revenue.
