So, did you join? I posted in that thread, but didn't see anything about what you'd decided on.
I'm a bit surprised there. I find it's a pretty darn good value. There's stuff in the NGs there that you would NEVER see posted publicly in a forum like this that anyone can read. The membership is filtered and checked out, so Stephen Huff isn't in there.
Can I ask why you didn't find it worth renewing?
If you're interested, there's a lot more stuff about PAD in the private groups (asp.committee.pad_spec). At the moment the next PADGen beta is available. It's a fantastic improvement over the existing one.
I'm hoping to get time to create a download site (not a PADkit one) and get some extra value in there unlike all the PADkit clones. Not sure if I'll have time as it's a big job. I'll talk to you though when I've got it going. (First I've got another project centered around PAD that I'd like to get done -- hopefully in May.)
