Good questions, see below:

Yes, next up is the 1959. It is the same process we had to go through
for the '89 and '79. Scan, do optical character recognition, proof read,
correct, add tabs, add it in the database. The 1999 was in electronic
form already so the job was easier.
When Mike Lowe takes over as Registrar, we will start adding the Annual
R& Is for 2000 & up. Schedule undetermined, btu we need to look at
whether AIS has recovered the cost of printing the 2000, 2001 etc. So
they will probably be phased in over time.

Possible certainly. When, probably not for a while. Online credit card
transactions require management. I know Pay Pay, Yahoo etc are
available, but they cost and take some management. Sooner or later we
will get there (when I have less on my plate)

Yes, you can pay as far ahead as you want. At the Fall board meeting we
will be discussing a lifetime membership to irisregister.

Probably sooner than that, but certainly at that point. Depends to some
extent on when AIS recovers the cost of printing the '99 Check List.
