Thanks for the link. I wish the article told you how to contact the company to find out the details about the DRIP.

For me anyway DRIP investing is great because you can send as much as you what to send that month. You don't have to commit to buy a full share and paying a fee to some online brokerage house or think gee if it is going to cost me 6.95 if I buy one share or 10 I should make that fee worthwhile. Then you try to save up enough to make a decent sized purchase. With the DRIP idea that all goes away. You can buy a portion of a share or whatever.

It is sort of like putting money in a piggy bank except this has a chance at a better payoff.
