Recommend all you want, pal.  While I far prefer people to sign up with 
CI rather than nothing, the
SA and Alcor folks are using better technology, fully controlled by 
cryonicists, and it costs more
because it is a more rigorous procedure.  It is likely their patients 
will come through sooner and
with less damage because of the more rigorous procedure, and the odds of 
it working at all are
better.  But any cryonic freeze gives better odds than none.   And 
should  I feel able to avail myself
of SA services I will add them.
