    The sites have never been a source of my wealth, nor have I ever considered making money off them (okay, I did have stats sent my way years ago, but it wasn’t enough for me to consider “working” for the sites rather than focusing on my main streams of income. Meaning, an hour here means an hour not spent elsewhere. That would be a negative financial decision). Additionally, I don't need it, and that would dilute my purpose for maintaining the sites.

    They are, however, a source of my burden. That's for sure.

    That has nothing to do with me. You'll have to ask Patches directly.

    dear @Patches,

    may we bribe you with site donations in order to get the color scheme changed and go back to the old style of inserting images?

    sincerely,
    whatever

    Well, the serious answer is that it takes $800.00 a year to run the site, plus monies for Patches this year. At current, we have $359.00 in the account. So the answer is that it depends on how many people will donate and at what rate they will donate. Those are clearly answers I do not have; hence, my joke because the answer is unknowable.

    Based on reasons that I'm not willing to reveal, I've unilaterally decided to donate $20.







    ...I had to say that.

    Done.
