    Yeah, that's very odd because I only received one donation yesterday. *shrugs*

    4 reasons I think it makes sense to donate:

    1. Entertainment Value - We pay for most every other form of entertainment we participate in. I went out to dinner last night. It was $100. The cable bill is $80 per month. What do you spend when you go out to the movies? If you spend a significant amount of time here, it seems reasonable to pay something.
    2. Personal Value - Think about what you have learned here and how it has been useful to you. What is that worth?
    3. Personal Responsibility - How are you going to feel when the donation drive ends and you haven't donated anything and most others you know have?
    4. Hardware, software, and labor are not free - Last time I checked anyway.

    Anyway, I don't think this will stay open for very long, so you may want to put in something today that is proportionate to the value you think you receive from the forum. My guess is it will make you feel good.

    Is there any way to donate that doesn't require signing up for PayPal? I'd like to donate, but don't want to give the PayPal/Ebay folks any personal data. Seriously -- I'll mail you a check, Haight, if that's acceptable.

    I'm going to setup a PO Box this week for site mail, so I'll let you know at that time.

    PayPal and Po Box are the only ways one can donate?

    Haight, thank you for owning and operating this site - and for keeping it free of advertisers, as well as free for us to use. And thank you madmins for all the work that you do.

    I believe there's a setting you can enable in Paypal so that you can take credit cards.

    No, I was just wondering because Po Box wouldn't probably work for me and I don't have a PayPal account.
    But I'll check the PayPal out and maybe create an account and so on.
    I would like to contribute because I do like this site a lot.
