Speaking of which should we change the "Have you read the release form"
to "I have read and agree to the release form"

I don't remember why Chris just stopped caring if we had a signed copy
and simply asked people if they had read it. But it would be good to
make the check box essentially a signature of agreement, so we don't
have to worry about printing, signing and keeping the papers.
