The Tau Ceti Co-operative Ltd
Tau Ceti is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed in February 2003 by a group of technologists who decided that the best way to support their hosting needs would be to set up an organisation which helps other people with their hosting needs — a virtuous cycle was born.

Volunteers keep Tau Ceti running smoothly. Enthusiastic individuals who can bring their console-kung-fu or administrative genius to our organisation are very welcome. A one-time only membership fee of $50 gets you on board and we'll start finding interesting and useful things to do to help us keep Tau Ceti a going concern. We're always looking for people who can contribute to the day to day operation of a volunteer organisation.

How it works
The Tau Ceti Co-operative Ltd is governed by a set of rules, registered with the Registrar of Co-operatives in the State of Victoria, Australia. Like all registered co-operatives we are also covered by the Co-operatives Act of 1996.
Incidentally, Tau Ceti, is a star that has been popular in science fiction stories and some home computer games. What our chances are of being featured in stories and games we don't know. However, there's definitely life in this Tau Ceti Co-operative! As for the star, if you want to know more have a look at Christoph Kulmann's web page on it.
