My two cents....
1) T-Shirts are always a good idea :-). I like the earlier suggestions to have a contest to redesign the logo. I would certainly pay for it, I am not expecting something for free.
2) More Grump Editor articles. I can hoestly say that the way these are produced makes them invaluable. They cut through all the cruft most other sites have we doing a "review" and get to the real meat. The option of having these (or any other article) downloadable as a PDF (viewable in Evince of course)
3) A series similar to the Grumpy Editor that essentially is a collection of Howto's. For example, a real world small office Linux server howto. Yes, I know there are howto documents, man pages, etc. but someone walking through setting up Samba step by step for the perspective of a technically competent user who may not be too familiar with Linux would be invaluable. I would pay an additional premium if need be for such content, if done in the same style and of the same caliber of the current Grumpy Editor series. I am no newbie (I actually have my Red Hat Certified Engineer Certification) but I also like good groundings in the basics, am more importantly, examples of how it solves real world problems.
Again, my two cents, YMMV
